An expanded TV version of the original feature film also starring Sam Neill, this is the Complete Three-Part Miniseries of the rollicking adventure.
Acclaimed actor Sam Neill (Death in Brunswick, Jurassic Park) stars as the suave and enigmatic bush ranger, Captain Starlight, in this lavish action adventure tale set in the rugged Australian outback. Joined by bush larrikin, Ben Marston (Ed Devereaux - Skippy), and Bens two adventure-hungry sons (Steven Vidler and Christopher Cummings), Starlight leads his gang of wild colonial boys in search of riches, romance and other mens cale. After some daring escapades, including a nocturnal train hijack and a hot-air balloon assisted jailbreak, the boys decide to change their lives and go straight after one last job. However their luck may be running out. With the chief of police and his men in tow, the outlaws will have to make a run for it in one last wild race to freedom.
From the producers of Breaker Morant and Storm Boy, Robbery Under Arms is the epic tale of Australia’s most colourful literary outlaw.
