High Ground is a Stephen Johnson directed action / thriller starring Simon Baker, Callan Mulvey and Jack Thompsom.
Set in Australia in 1919, after fighting in WWI as a sniper, Travis (Baker), now a Policeman in northern Australia loses control of an operation that results in the massacre of an Indigenous tribe.
When his superiors insist on burying the truth, Travis leaves in disgust, only to be forced back twelve years later to hunt down an Aboriginal warrior whose attacks on new-settlers are causing havoc. Once again, things don’t go quite as smoothly as Travis hoped…
I’m drawn to this one because of the promising visuals, the words ‘Australia’s untold history‘ and the long chase sequence hinted at in this trailer.
Caren Pistorius, Ryan Corr, John Bray, Mark Garrawurra, Frances Djubiling, Jimmy Cooper, James Demsey, Wakarra Gondarra, John Brumpton, David Field and Mick Glancy also star.
