Movie Info

In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family's prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les's prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley. While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?

Watching Neill coo 'you are beautiful, no, you are beautiful' to his flock is entertainment factor alone but this is an unexpectedly lovely little film.

It is an odd experience, and I wonder what it would be like if I hadn't seen the original...a strange comedy in a remote area...but well-worth checking out...

Same fundamental idea, weaker execution.

February 6, 2021 | Rating: C+ | Full Review…

It works on the assumption that a story about grumpy old gits united against a common foe has a universal appeal. True, to an extent...

February 6, 2021 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

The ending, however, is the dealbreaker and has been transformed from tear-jerking heartbreaker (I bawled) to grim chocolate box schmaltz (I almost barfed).

February 5, 2021 | Rating: 2/5 | Full Review…

"Rams" isn't earth-shattering, but real-feeling and engaging, with a strong cast and fine sheep and a good dog.
