Rams – Coming to UK In Cinemas & Digital Platforms February 5th

The funny and touching Rams is sure to have audiences flock to see it. In remote
Western Australia, two estranged brothers, Colin (Sam Neill, Jurassic Park) and Les
(Michael Caton, The Castle), 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?

Inspired by the 2015 Icelandic film Hrútar, but very much its own piece, Rams was
directed by Jeremy Sims (Last Cab to Darwin) and also stars Miranda Richardson
(The Crying Game) plus Asher Keddie (X-Men Origins: Wolverine) and Wayne Blair
(The Sapphires).
