From one of Australia's greatest filmmakers, Peter Weir (Picnic at Hanging Rock, The Cars that Ate Paris), comes one of the most acclaimed Australian films of all time. Gallipoli retells one of our nation's pivotal historial moments, the battle of Gallipoli, and was rewarded for its thematic ambition with and outpouring of critical and commercial success.
In Western Australia in 1915 two young men join up to fight in the First World War. Archy Hamilton (Mark Lee) is the patriotic son of a grazier. Frank Dunne (Mel Gibson) is a drifter with no great desire to fight for the British Empire. They meet as runners in an outback footrace and become best mates. After training in Egypt, they land at Gallipoli, just as the great allied assaults of August 1915 are to begin.
Eschewing jingoism or simple patriotism in favour of friendship, personal loyalty, and a pervasive anti-war rhetoric, Gallipoli remains just as towering and powerful now as it was on its initial release.
