Adam's Woman

hoopla digital

Streaming video - 1970

Imagine yourself a young man cast into the hell of a 19th-century Australian penal colony. Now imagine the warden making you this offer: marry one of the female prisoners and homestead a verdant, untamed valley. Once away from prison walls, do you bolt for freedom…or find your liberty in the land? Three-time Emmy winner Beau Bridges, Jane Merrow (The Lion in Winter) and John Mills (winner of the Academy Award* for Ryan's Daughter the same year this movie opened) star in this brawling, big-as-all-outdoors saga of the winning of the Australian West. From its harrowing depiction of prison life to its captivating, action-filled scenes of unlikely settlers challenging the wilderness, Adam's Woman is enthralling entertainment from the... Land Down Under.
