The Irishman

Paddy Doolan (Michael Craig) is a man who refuses to accept change. In a new century where the motor car is changing the way things are done, the stubborn Irishman, the last of the Draught-horse teamsters, continues to haul timber the old way. His recalcitrance has estranged him from his wife Jenny (Robyn Nevin) and sons Will (Lou Brown) and Michael (Simon Burke). But Michael continues to love his father and goes in search of him. Michael's odyssey will involve a part-time horse thief and a stern station owner, and finally lead to an understanding and newfound respect for his father, the man they call "The Irishman". Regarded as one of Australian Cinema's most overlooked classics.
