A triumphant reminder of Mel Gibson’s prodigious talent behind the camera. Filmed here in Australia with an international cast, the film initially adheres to the time-honoured structure of a traditional war movie. Just when the production appears formulaic, he unleashes a graphic, gripping battlefield that will resonate. Stars Andrew Garfield. 8.30PM, SBS VICELAND
This compelling true story of two Melbourne schoolboys (Ryan Corr and Craig Stott) who fall in love despite the intense misgivings of their families intimately connects on several fronts. Though fated by the tragic nature of its story, this fine film speaks a personal, yet universal, truth that anyone with a heart will understand. Directed by Neil Armfield ( Candy).
