About the film
Inspired by real events, SWEET COUNTRY is a period western set in 1929 in the outback of the Northern Territory, Australia where justice itself is put on trial.
When Aboriginal stockman Sam kills white station owner Harry March in self-defense, Sam and his wife Lizzie go on the run. They are pursued across the outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. Sergeant Fletcher leads the posse, desperate to capture Sam and put him on trial for murder. Eventually, for the health of his pregnant wife, Sam decides to give himself up. He is put on trial in the courtroom of Judge Taylor. But will justice be served?
SWEET COUNTRY OPENS IN CINEMAS ACROSS AUSTRALIA JANUARY 25, 2018
