Robbery Under Arms
Not yet reviewed.
Acclaimed actor Sam Neill ("The Dish", "Jurassic Park") stars as the suave and enigmatic bushranger, Captain Starlight, in this lavish action adventure tale set in the rugged Australian outback. Joined by bush larrikin, Ben Marston (Ed Devereaux), and Ben's two adventure-hungry sons (Steven Vidler and Christopher Cummings), Starlight leads his gang of wild colonial boys in search of riches, romance - and other men's cattle.
After some daring escapades, including a nocturnal train hijack and a hot-air balloon assisted jailbreak, the boys decide to change their lives and go straight - after one last job. But, their luck may be running out. With the chief of police and his men on to them, the outlaws will have to make a run for it in one last wild race to freedom. From the producers of "Breaker Morant" and "Storm Boy", ROBBERY UNDER ARMS is the epic tale of Australia's most colourful literary outlaw, Captain Starlight, played with waggish charm and music-hall roguery by the talented Sam Neill.
