Watch the trailer for Australian western Sweet Country

Following a successful run on the festival circuit the UK trailer for Australian western Sweet Country has been released and you can check it out above.

The film follows the story of Sam, a middle-aged Aboriginal man, working for a preacher in the outback of Australia’s Northern Territory. When Harry, a bitter war veteran, moves into a neighbouring outpost, Sam and his family are sent to help Harry renovate his cattle yards. But Sam’s relationship with the cruel, ill tempered Harry quickly deteriorates, culminating in a violent shoot out.

Sam becomes a wanted criminal for the murder of a white man, and is forced to flee with his wife across the deadly outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. A hunting party led by the local law man Sergeant Fletcher is formed to track Sam down. But as the true details of the killing start to surface, the community begins to question whether justice is really being served.

Warwick Thornton directs with a cast featuring Hamilton Morris, Sam Neill, Thomas M. Wright, Bryan Brown and Ewan Leslie.

Sweet Country is released in UK cinemas on March 9th.
