Sweet Country, except for the people

1920’s was no place to be if you were an Aboriginal Australian. Or a woman. The story takes place in the vastly beautiful Australian outback. An Aboriginal man defends himself against a drunk, armed white land owner. The result is the white owner is killed. The man has to flee and takes his wife with him. They walk. The posse comes after them. But the old Aboriginee is too smart for them and would have escaped except for his wife is now pregnant from the white mans rape of her. He returns with her and surrenders. He faces trial. Every movie which shows this theme still makes me furious. We were are and such a racist cruel and stupid bunch of people. I guess if you have no soul and you have limited brains, you go around acting like you are better because your skin has less pigment. The movie is spot on.
