The Shiralee
The Shiralee, based on D'Arcy Niland's much loved novel, marked Peter Finch's return to Australian cinema.

Delivering a well-modulated and controlled performance as Macauley, an itinerant bushworker, he returns to his home in Sydney to find his wife and young daughter living with another man.
