|"A brilliant, tireless, powerhouse drama."|
-- Playboy Magazine
Chronicling an obscure but controversial incident in Australian history, Breaker Morant stands alongside classic military dramas The Caine-Mutiny-Court Martial, and A Few Good Men. During the Boer War, three Australian soldiers are brought to trial for executing prisoners under the orders of the British government, only to find themselves in the position of scapegoats. Tautly directed by Bruce Beresford, the film introduced Americans to actors Edward Woodward and Bryan Brown.
