    Bruce Beresford: Two U.S. breakthroughs from one of the Australian New Wave’s prime movers

Part of the program

A gripping true-story drama about the court martial of Australian officers Edward Woodward and Bryan Brown for executing prisoners during the Boer War. With flashbacks revealing what led to the atrocities, Beresford aimed to depict what causes men to commit war crimes—but Australian audiences took it as a story of innocent men railroaded by the British Army.
