Inspired by real events, a period western set in 1929 in the outback of the Northern Territory, Australia.
As the sun goes down and the stars come out, the Cape Mentelle gardens transform into an outdoor cinema beside the iconic vines. With cult favourites and box-office hits projected on the big screen and the spectacular natural environment as the backdrop, it's the ideal recipe for the perfect summer evening. Arrive early to experience the stunning Margaret River sunset and truly seize the night with gourmet food matched with your favourite bottle of Cape Mentelle wine.

SWEET COUNTRY (MA15+)
Sam, a middle-aged Aboriginal man, works for a preacher in the outback of Australia's Northern Territory. When Harry, a bitter war veteran, moves into a neighbouring outpost, the preacher sends Sam and his family to help Harry renovate his cattle yards. But Sam's relationship with the cruel and ill-tempered Harry quickly deteriorates, culminating in a violent shootout in which Sam kills Harry in self-defence. As a result, Sam becomes a wanted criminal for the murder of a white man, and is forced to flee with his wife across the deadly outback, through glorious but harsh desert country. A hunting party led by the local lawman Sergeant Fletcher is formed to track Sam down. But as the true details of the killing start to surface, the community begins to question whether justice is really being served.
