Bastard Boys

Bastard Boys is 2-disc collection that revolves around a turbulent area of unionism during Australia history in 1988 where battle for Australia's waterfront stopped a nation.

The director Ray Quint does a wonderful job at melding a variety of different movie genres into one entertaining and awe-inspiring drama series. Ironically, both parties involved in this dispute have their stories told in Bastard Boys which begins with a phone call to John Coombs (Colin Friels), the head of the Maritime Union in Australia who uncovers a plot to threaten the very jobs of Australian workers.

This then leads to an all our war between the wharfies, lawyers, unionists and heads of the corporate enterprise in an attempt to replace unionised workforces on the docks.

Colin Friels and Jack Thompson do a wonderful job at reenacting their characters and match that with Quint's talents as a director and you have a very innovative and entertaining drama series.

Truly a gripping tale of Australian history, especially in terms of the Liberal workplace reforms. Great stuff!
