As much a study of the trappings of masculinity, and the struggles between tradition and progress, as it is about sheep, this is a gentle comedy drama with a surprisingly big heart. Adapted from the 2015 Icelandic film of the same name -- which itself received many plaudits -- Rams could easily have wandered into farce and slapstick. But thankfully it avoids these trappings, maintaining a light tone, while offering something a little deeper from its characters.

Neill, who regularly shares photos of his real-life farm on social media, is ideally cast as the calm, loving breeder, who reminds his "girls" how beautiful they are and gives his ram brotherly pep talks. He's the antithesis of Caton's alcoholic recluse, whose temper is expressed in bullet-fueled tirades and a "get off my lawn" mentality. The pair are like repelling magnets, the emotional distance between them forever undermined by their close proximity and the unspoken connection of underlying similarity -- a strong force that continues to pull them in each other's direction. It's a tension that can never be overcome without acknowledging their place in each other's past and the inevitable role they must play in rebuilding themselves and their futures.
