Accused of murder, an Aboriginal stockman and his wife try to stay ahead of a fervent posse in this powerful period drama from acclaimed Australian director Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah).
It's 1929 and Sam (Hamilton Morris) works for a preacher (Sam Neill) in the outback of Australia's Northern Territory. When Harry, a bitter, racist war veteran moves into a neighbouring outpost, the preacher sends Sam and his family to help, but Harry goes on a booze-filled rampage one night and Sam has to shoot him in self-defence. Predicting that frontier 'justice' will prevail, Sam and his wife go on the run - with the local sergeant and a group of landowners in hot pursuit...
With gorgeous cinematography and impressive performances, Sweet Country is a potent epic that offers a vital Indigenous perspective.
