The latest film from Warwick Thornton (Samson and Delilah) received a five minute standing ovation at Venice. Inspired by real events, Sweet Country is a period Aussie western set in 1929 in the outback.

They are pursued across the outback by the local police-sergeant (Bryan Brown) and a local landowner (Sam Neill).
