It’s Christmas! So, after the year that was 2016, it’s only fair to discuss the most Christmassy film that Australia has to offer. Yep, that’d be John Hillcoat’s dirty, disgusting western epic, The Proposition. Once again, Andrew has dragged Michael Denniston from War Machine VS War Horse kicking and screaming to discuss an uplifting epic about death and retribution in summertime 1880’s Australia. But, before that discussion, Andrew and Bernadette go into the (short) history of Australian Christmas films, while also discussing the importance of recognising Aboriginal Culture in films.
