Australian Movie Month: The Lighthorsemen (1987)

Starring: Jon Blake, Peter Phelps, John Walton, Sigrid Thornton

Director: Simon Wincer

Beautifully shot, and full of patriotism and horses! Yay! Based on the true story of the Australian lighthorsemen and their ride that broke the British deadlock in Palestine in 1917, this is a classic Australian New Wave film, with many of the themes of mateship, landscape and more that was part of the national consciouness at the time.
