Here’s a question for you — what’s the best movie you’ve seen by accident?
I remember going to some multiplex, finding that the movie I was planning on watching was sold out and stumbled into this instead.
Breaker Morant is a movie about how, as the director once put it, wartime atrocities can be “committed by people who appear to be quite normal”. It’s also about the difficulty of a government putting its own soldiers on trial for murder for acts performed in the field.
The acting is superb and the ending is one of the most moving I’ve ever watched. Try to keep a lump out of your throat.
“Shoot straight, you bastards. Don’t make a mess of it.”
