The Proposition: 4K Ultra HD Edition (UHD + Blu-ray)


John Hillcoat's classic Australian Western, newly restored in 4K

- +

In the unforgiving landscape of the Outback, Charlie Burns (Guy Pearce) is presented with an impossible proposition by local lawman Captain Stanley (Ray Winstone): to save his younger brother Mikey from the noose, he must track down and kill Arthur (Danny Huston), his increasingly unhinged older sibling.

A palpable sense of foreboding builds in the oppressive heat, as each character takes on their punishing moral dilemmas and the cycle of violence appears unstoppable.

Newly restored in 4K, director John Hillcoat (The Road, Triple 9) and writer Nick Cave’s modern classic is presented here as a new 4K UHD, along with a Blu-ray disc featuring new and archive extras.
