Sons of Matthew - Classic Australian Movie - DVD
InformationThis is the movie referred to in the documentary "The Man from Coxs River".
Inspired by a courageous true story, Sons of Matthew (also known as The Rugged O'Riordans) is the remarkable tale of three generations of the O'Riordan family, a tight-knit unit working together to survive the harsh realities of rural Australian life - a land of drought, bushfires and cyclones.
Brought to life in stunning detail by pioneering filmmaker Charles Chauvel (Jedda,Forty Thousand Horsemen), featuring Michael Pate, John O'Malley and John Ewart, Sons of Matthew explores Australia's hostile terrain and climate, a place where survival depends on a tough rural instinct, measured by blood and brotherhood.
Fully restored and presented in a brand new transfer, Sons of Matthew captures the quintessential Aussie spirit of hard work, mateship and the timeless struggle between man and nature.
