"Dirtwater Dynasty" is the story of embittered rivalry, triumph and despair. The life of Richard Eastwick is told in a story spanning three generations and eight decades. Born in the London slums in 1878, he comes to Australia at age 20, with nothing but a handful of courage and a dream. He acquires land, marries and raises a family, wins loyal friends and makes bitter enemies, and builds a land and cattle ranching empire. Both world wars and the economic depression take their toll on his family. But his dream to create a dynasty gives him a reason to continue. Written by
Richard Eastwick has to be the unluckiest man alive
This story follows Richard Eastwick through 3 generations of trying to better himself, and his family. Children, and wives depart many times before his life comes to an end, he seems to blame god for all his misfortune, and god does win in the end.
We see drama through drought, famine, 2 wars, there is rivalry unsurpassed, and he has a poem, I only wish I could remember it to put on here that sums his whole life.
I really do want to buy this film, so please if you have it contact me.
