12th February at 6.30pm: Sweet Country -  premiered at the prestigious 74th Venice Film Festival in Italy and received a standing ovation lasting almost five minutes. 

In this searing drama of brutal racism, director Warwick Thornton takes a traditional theme of the western, justice on the frontier, and transports it to the Australian outback in the early 20th century. An aboriginal man who has killed a crazed white settler in self-defence flees into the desert with his wife to escape a self-righteous posse. The story is both fresh and archetypal; the landscape both hard and delicate – and beautifully observed. Memories and premonitions are intriguingly inserted into the action and the performances from Hamilton Morris as the accused, Natassia Gorey-Furber as his wife, Sam Neill as their charitable employer and Bryan Brown as a vengeful lawman, are note perfect. The results are unforgettable, a new Australian classic. For a flyer , click here. To book, click here.
