Jack Thompson(Breaker Morant,The Chant of Jimmie Blacksmith) is Foley, the best shearer on every station for miles around.Sunday Too Far Awayis Foley's story of sweat-soaked days and rum-soaked nights, of bloody two-fisted punch ups... of scab labour brought in during the shearers strike of '56 and of the poor old bastard who runs the place: the cocky who is terrified that one slip of the shears will render his prize ram good for nothing but mint sauce.
Directed by Ken Hannam (Summerfield,Dawn!) and written by John Dingwall (The Custodian), and featuring a powerhouse cast includingReg Lye,Max Cullen,Robert Brunning andPeter Cummins,Sunday Too Far Awayoffers a candid and unromantic take on outback masculinity, mateship and struggle in the face of an uncertain future.
Director: Ken Hannam
Cast: Jack Thompson, Reg Lye, Max Cullen, Robert Brunning, Peter Cummins
