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?
The film is the first produced screenplay of writer Jules Duncan, a former TV reporter with Channel 9 and GWN. 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 »
Cinematography, music, actors, dialogues, story, good humour - it's all quietly brilliant over here!
This sheep drama remade from an Iceland feature works just as well down under. If you like good humour, a bit of drama and Sam Neill, 'Rams' is certainly your ticket to having a great time at the movies this year!
