Sweet Country

Preview by Jack Foley

THE acclaimed Australian drama directed by Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah) is a sweeping historical epic set against the brutal backdrop of a stunning landscape.

1920s outback Australia, Northern Territory. When Sam (Morris), an Aboriginal farmhand who works for the local preacher (Sam Neill, Hunt for the Wilderpeople) is sent to help new neighbour and bitter war veteran Harry (Ewan Leslie, The Railway Man), their relationship quickly deteriorates, ending in a violent and fatal shootout.

Sam is forced to flee with his wife, pursued by lawman Sergeant Fletcher (Bryan Brown, The Light Between Oceans), but as the truth starts to surface, the community begins to question whether justice is really being served.

Directed by Warwick Thornton (Samson & Delilah), Sweet Country has so far been the recipient of multiple accolades, including the Special Jury Prize in Venice and Best Film in the Platform Competition at Toronto.

Bonus features include: Cast and crew interviews; Big World (from The Turning) directed by Warwick Thornton; Behind the scenes and trailers.
