Entertainment One released the 2010 Australian war movie Beneath Hill 60 on DVD on June 28, 2011.

Directed by Jeremy Sims, Beneath Hill 60 is set during World War I and tells the story of the 1st Australian Tunneling Company’s effort to make their way behind enemy lines, tunnel German bunker on the Western front and detonate an explosive there to aid the advancing British troops.

The film’s screenplay by David Roach is based on an account of the operation written by Captain Oliver Woodward, who is portrayed by Brendan Cowell (I Love You Too) in the movie.

Beneath Hill 60 was well-received in its native country, where it was nominated for 12 Australian Film Institute Awards including Best Film, Best Director and Best Actor (Cowell). In the U.S., the movie picked up awards at the Savannah Film Festival and the Hamptons Film Festival, though it still made its commercial debut on these shores as a DVD premiere.

The DVD was priced at $24.98 and includes a making-of featurette and interviews with the cast and crew as bonus features.
