The Proposition ★★½ 1996 (R)

Unless widow Catherine Morgan (Russell) can find the money to pay her late husband's gambling debts, she and her two daughters will be evicted from their Welsh farm. She refuses to take the easy way and marry local sheriff Huw (Lynch), instead making a bargain with his rakish, drunken bastard brother Rhys (Bergin) to drive her cattle to Gloucester market. Huw takes exception to this plan and tries every dirty trick he can to thwart them and naturally, Catherine and Rhys become more than antagonistic allies along the rough journey. 99m/C VHS, DVD . Theresa Russell, Patrick Bergin, Richard Lynch, Richard Harrington, Jennifer Vaughan, Ifan Huw Dafydd, Nick McGaughey, Owen Garmon; D: Strathford Hamilton; W: Paul Matthews; C: David Lewis; M: Ben Heneghan, Ian Lawson.
