Summary
Acclaimed filmmaker Peter Weir's epic and profoundly moving portrayal of an event that forged a nation's spirit and became legend. Two young sprinters from Western Australia, the cynical larrikin Frank (Mel Gibson) and the idealistic Archy (Mark Lee) meet in 1915, during WWI. Friends and rivals, they enlist and are sent to fight in Turkey. As the two men battle in the chaotic and blood-soaked trenches of Gallipoli, they epitomise the sacrifice, the mateship and the tragic waste of the men whose undying courage in the face of overwhelming odds has defined Australia's identity today
