Sweet Country

Sweet Country
Drama, Crime | 2018 | R. 1hr 53min
CAST: Hamilton Morris, Bryan Brown, Sam Neill, Tremayne Doolan DIRECTOR: Warwick Thornton TUESDAY FILM SERIES

Australian western set on the Northern Territory frontier in the 1920s, where justice itself is put on trial when an aged Aboriginal farmhand shoots a white man in self defense and goes on the run as posse gathers to hunt him down.

The story is both fresh and archetypal; the landscape both hard and delicate - and beautifully observed.
Kate Taylor, Globe and Mail
The spare, classical chase drama that ensues is seeded with barbed observations on colonialism, cultural erasure and rough justice, kept poetically succinct by Thornton's lithe, soaring visual storytelling.
Guy Lodge, Variety
Sweet Country's complexity and sophistication mark it as a landmark work of Indigenous cinema.
