Rating:
PG

The Man from Snowy River is a dramatic film directed by George T. Miller based on a poem of the same name by Banjo Paterson that focuses on the life of an orphaned mountain boy, Jim Craig (Tom Burlinson), as he works to prove himself in order to earn the rights to live up in the mountains. After his father Henry (Terence Donovan) dies in a horse stampede, Jim's claim to his inheritance is challenged, only to be put to rest when he's forced to leave the mountains and find work, which he gets from the likes of Harrison (Kirk Douglas) as a farm hand. Jim does well until the same stampede that killed his father comes trampling through, exciting all the other horses and cattle, and the young man chases after them on a prized stallion in the hopes of getting his father's horse, Bess, back. Unfortunately, though, his actions anger Harrison and Jim has to prove more to himself than anyone that sometimes a man has to do what he has to do to the best of his abilities.
