It's tough driving 1,200 sheep across 400 miles of hostile outback. But for drovers Paddy and Ida Carmody and their son, Sean, it's the only job there is. Poor in possessions, they're rich in freedom, adventure and love. Four-time Academy Award winner* Fred Zinnemann directs this warmhearted tale of 1920 Australia. Robert Mitchum and Deborah Kerr play Paddy and Ida, a devoted couple suddenly at odds. She and Sean (Michael Anderson Jr.) want a farm of their own. But settling down is more than Paddy's untethered spirit can bear. The Sundowners earned five Oscar nominations, including Best Picture, won Kerr the New York Film Critics Best Actress Award and made Mitchum the National Board of Review Best Actor choice for this and Home from the Hill. Say g'day to a movie treasure.
