Add To Cart
The highly explosive and equally funny story of Jimmie Blacksmith (Tommy Lewis), a young Australian half-caste Aborigine who is torn between his true Aboriginal roots and an impulse to integrate into White Colonial society. As Jimmie grows into a hard working young man,he consistently finds himself flagrantly cheated and suppressed by his white employers, forcing him to seek some relief in love, which he finds in a white woman whom he marries under duress. As the pressure builds, Jimmie explodes, resulting in one of the darkest, most violent endings in movie history. Fred Schepisi directs this film based on the Thomas Keneally book, which was inspired by true events.
