The Man From Snowy River

1h 42m Drama 1982

The rugged Victorian Highlands provide the backdrop for one of the quintessential Australian westerns.

After his father dies at the hands (or hooves) of a herd of wild brumbies, 18-year-old Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson) quickly discovers that his inherited property, in the highlands near the Snowy River, is in financial strife. To prove himself, he heads downhill to a nearby cattle station to take on work as a jackaroo.

More than just an Aussie horse opera, this film employs stunning scenery, technical flair and Kirk Douglas in two roles in its pursuit of an uplifting conclusion.” The Guardian
