Add to Watchlist

Breaker Morant is a dramatic film about three soldiers who undergo a court-martial after being accused of a murder during the Second Boer War in South Africa. They are accused of killing prisoners of war. The drama in the film comes from the fact that their defense attorney is assigned to them the day before trial and consequently has little time to prepare a defense.

The soldiers are caught up in a political situation as their commander wants to use the court-martial as a way to show he believes in peace and justice and wants to end the war. The commandeer believes war is barbaric and has brought the three men to such a bitter situation. He gives a dramatic speech during the trial laying out all his reasons for the court martial.

Breaker Morant is notable because it is based on a true story and it shows the affects war has on people and a country.
