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?
Based on the 2015 Icelandic movie of the same name. See more »
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 »
Much as I respect and like Sam Neill, Miranda Richardson and Michael Caton as actors and still do - I thought this movie would deliver me much more entertainment than it did.
A story without any breathtaking highs or spectacular lows, outrageous laughs or shoulder-shaking melancholy had me almost begging for it to end.
The funniest parts in the movie involved the handling of the prize ram's prize plums by all and sundry.
Yes. Oh dear. It was.
I gave the cast three stars and the ram the other three.
