Warwick Thornton’s landmark indigenous Western

provides a pitiless yet poetic portrait of life on the

Australian frontier. Sent by a local preacher-farmer

to renovate the neighbouring cattle yards, Sam

Kelly (Hamilton Morris) a hard-working, soft-spoken

Aboriginal farmhand and his wife Lizzie (Natassia

Gorey Furber) find themselves at the mercy of

alcoholic war veteran Harry (Ewen Leslie).

Brutalised and exploited, they and their fellow

labourers fight to address a lifetime of injustice

and as confrontation boils over into unhinged

violence, a hail of gunfire ultimately leaves the

Kelly’s with blood on their hands. Their humble

existence shattered and armed only with the instinct

to survive, Sam and Lizzie find themselves on a

desperate run from the law across the unforgiving

outback. Director, Thornton, who pulls double duty

here as a both director and cinematographer, proves

himself something of a classicist; the influence

of John Ford and John Sturgess dashed in broad

strokes throughout the beauty and brutality of

Australia’s barren landscapes. It’s true Western fare

for sure and through a tangle of conflict, oppression

and racial disharmony, Sweet Country mightily dives

into a climate of prejudice and persecution with

effortless grace. (Research Chris Coetsee) A beautiful

word-picture, Chris. Come and see.
