The Nugget Details

FULL SYNOPSIS

Australian director Bill Bennett (Bill Bennett) adds broad slapstick comedy to his repertoire with this rags-to-riches tale of luck and greed. The Nugget follows three pals whose occasional searches for gold in the outback are little more than an inane hobby. That is, until a sign from above directs them to an actual reserve of the precious metal hidden in the hills. Overcome with avarice, the trio bickers over how to split up the booty, all the while not noticing that two other enterprising men are waiting in the wings to steal their find. The Nugget stars future Bill Bennett actor Eric Bana in a leading role. ~ Michael Hastings, Rovi
