Sam Neill returns to the Outback in the Sweet Country Trailer


Quote:
Sam, a middle-aged Aboriginal man, works for a preacher in the outback of Australia’s Northern Territory. When Harry, a bitter war veteran, moves into a neighbouring outpost, the preacher sends Sam and his family to help Harry renovate his cattle yards. But Sam’s relationship with the cruel and ill-tempered Harry quickly deteriorates, culminating in a violent shootout in which Sam kills Harry in self-defence.

As a result, Sam becomes a wanted criminal for the murder of a white man, and is forced to flee with his wife across the deadly outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. A hunting party led by the local lawman Sergeant Fletcher is formed to track Sam down. But as the true details of the killing start to surface, the community begins to question whether justice is really being served.

Looks like a vehicle for sanctimonious preaching on race relations. Uninterested in entertainment that so obviously has an ideological message it wants to brick into its audience.

Pass.

Sort of what Terran said but I think the differences between the people Down Under with the Aborigines and race relations gives some much needed distance. Enough I might go see it.

It gives a chance to enjoy and digest in a context that doesn't feel like a bulldog race relation attack against me.
