Synopsis: Personal revenge or act of war? Crazed soldiers or political scapegoats? Winner of 10 Australian Film Institute Awards, this powerful film directed by the Oscar-nominated Bruce Beresford (Tender Mercies, Driving Miss Daisy) continues to stir audiences with its timeless themes of wartime morality and military hypocrisy.
Based on a true story, Edward Woodward (TV's The Equalizer) unforgettably stars as the controversial folk hero and Renaissance man Lt. Harry "Breaker" Morant. As South Africa's controversial Boer War draws to a close, Morant and two fellow Australian soldiers (Bryan Brown, Lewis Fitzgerald) are court-martialed for murder. Their only hope lies in a small-town lawyer who fights passionately for their lives.
