About this Film

Sweet Country

ODEON says...
'Sweet Country' is an Australian western that sees Sam, a middle-aged Aboriginal farmer, go on the run through the outback after killing a white man in self-defence. 

Knowing he can't expect a fair trial, he trusts in his knowledge of the wilderness and makes a run for it, with a posse in hot pursuit. But as the true details of his actions come to light, people start to question whether it's justice to hunt him down. 

Inspired by true events, 'Sweet Country' is the latest film from acclaimed director Warwick Thornton and stars Hamilton Morris and Sam Neill.
