Guy Pearce in The Proposition, an Outback western


The Proposition, starring Guy Pearce
Plot: Written by Nick Cave, this poetic ensemble piece about three brothers is set in the Australian Outback of the late 1800s. The "proposition" is morally complex: the middle brother must kill his elder brother so that the youngest one won't be hung by a British captain.

Perks: "What fresh hell is this?"— Technically, a western should be set in the Western United States, but in this case, the godforsaken landscape of the Outback is a fine stand-in as the backdrop for a difficult decision. Enjoy this Shakespeare-quoting, beautifully gritty gem about a dusty, lawless time.
