Breaker Morant

The film that brought world acclaim for Edward Woodward, tells the true story of Lieutenant Harry 'Breaker' Morant in the Boer War in South Africa, 1901, which has deteriorated into a bitter guerilla war. His Australian unit, the Bushveldt Carbineers, are ordered by the British High Command to fight the Boers and to 'take no prisoners'. In revenge over the death and mutilation of his friend during a Boer ambush, Morant's unit captures and then executes prisoners - an act which leads to one of the most controversial court-martials in military history. Winner of 10 AFI Awards including Best Picture, Best Director and Best Actor.
