The film tells the tale of an outlaw gang of brothers in the Australian Outback, whose violent acts are initiated and perpetuated by the oldest brother. When the younger brothers leave, unwilling to take part in any more violent activities, they are captured. An epic moral struggle follows when Charlie, the middle brother, must chose between saving his younger brother Mikey and killing his older brother, Arthur. “The Proposition” is an extremely graphic, gory, violent movie; however, it delves into human nature with a depth rarely seen in films. “The Proposition” is highly stylized, and the director creates a paradoxical atmosphere, surreal at times yet seemingly realistic. The screenplay and music are written by the singer/songwriter Nick Cave, in an impressive film debut. However, there are racial slurs and due to the extreme violence, this film is not Dove approved.
