Storyline

In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family's prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les's prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?

Goofs

When Colin simply pulls up a board that Les has shot a hole into, it is shown to have a tongue and groove. The tongue and groove would make it impossible to pull up the board without a lot of work on the other boards. See more »

Has trouble finding its feet
7 November 2020 | by pinkfatratSee all my reviews

It has a great cast and they really carry this film, but they have a lot of work on their shoulders.

No idea what the book is like but as a movie it has problems with where it wants to go. There's a bush fire story at the edge of it but it doesn't really get hooked in, just some vague mentions. There is great scope for humour , but it's not played on that much, and is almost over in the first 30 minutes. There's two love stories that don't go anywhere And the main plot? Other than the caricature of the government worker, there's so much that could of been better put together

This could have been a real feel good movie or bit more Aussie larkism , but left me and my friend flat .
