Watch Sunday Too Far Away

"Friday night he's too tired; Saturday night too drunk; Sunday, too far away."

This award winning film earns high praise for its realistic portrayal of the rough manners and sharp practices of sheep shearing stations in the Australian Outback a few generations ago. It depicts class differences between managers and employees, as well as the brutality that sometimes accompanied this agricultural work. Directed by Ken Hannam, the plot revolves around a strong willed, aging shearer, Foley (played by Jack Thompson). His hard earned money usually winds up being spent on drinking and gambling binges, and by the end of the week the process starts anew. But unexpected events happen when he demands a raise.
