Tagline: Peter Weir's film of...Gallipoli
Plot: "Gallipoli" relates the events surrounding the ill-fated World War I battle, in which Australian and New Zealand troops set out to capture Istanbul. But mistakes made by upper-echelon military commanders led to disaster -- in which the army grunts suffered the most.
The film, however, focuses not only on epic clashes, but on the friendships that developed between the soldiers on the field.
