(6-Good Film)

Old-fashioned. Solid. Appealing,

Australian western made in the 1980s when westerns were beginning to die out, The Man from Snowy River follows Jim Craig, a young man from the mountains, who goes to the lowlands and works for the tyrannical Mr. Harrison (Douglas) while falling for the man’s daughter. It’s a simple story, sweet and earnest. Very old-fashioned, but the Australian accents add a new color.

  1. I saw this many years ago. Like you said, it’s a sweet, old-fashioned story, but it feels fresh because it takes place in Australia. I have a lot of nostalgia for this film and I can’t bear it when someone knocks it down…which you didn’t do, happily. 🙂
