Overview
Mel Gibson delivers an electrifying performance in director Peter Weir's (The Truman Show, Witness) compelling story of friendship and adventure between two Australian soldiers in 1915. They cross continents and great oceans, climb the pyramids and walk through the ancient sands of Egypt to join their regiment at the fateful battle of Gallipoli. The echoes of history blend with the friends' compelling destiny as they become part of a legendary World War I confrontation between Australia and the German allied Turks—a battle that is to Australians what the Alamo is to Americans. Starring Mel Gibson and Mark Lee.
