The Drover's Wife: The Legend Of Molly Johnson

Body

In 1893, heavily pregnant Molly Johnson (Leah Purcell) and her children struggle to survive the harsh Australian landscape after her husband leaves to drove sheep in the high country. One day, she finds escaped Indigenous Australian convict (Rob Collins) wounded on her property and an unlikely bond begins to form between them. Meanwhile, new town lawman Nate Clintoff realises that Molly's husband is missing and sends his constable to investigate. A thrilling tale that explores racism and misogyny under colonial rule, and a labour of love for Purcell, who has also adapted Henry Lawson’s short story into a play and a novel.

There will be a pre-recorded Q&A with Filmhouse's Creative Director Kristy Matheson and director of The Drover's Wife: The Legend of Molly Johnson, Leah Purcell, after the following screenings:
