If you follow Sam Neill on Twitter, you'll know that between his acting jobs and wacky short movies, he has a lot of love for fauna. So starring as a sheep farmer feels like a natural fit. Find him dealing with an ovine issue in an exclusive new look at Rams.
In remote Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Neill) and Les (Michael Caton), are at war. Raising separate flocks of sheep descended from their family’s prized bloodline, the two men work side by side yet are worlds apart. When Les’s prize ram is diagnosed with a rare and lethal illness, authorities order a purge of every sheep in the valley.
While Colin attempts to stealthily outwit the powers that be, Les opts for angry defiance. But can the warring brothers set aside their differences and have a chance to reunite their family, save their herd, and bring their community back together?
Miranda Richardson, Asher Keddie and Wayne Blair also star, while Jeremy Sims directs, adapting the 2015 original. Rams is on all good UK Digital Platforms from 5th February via Signature Entertainment.
