The Price of Milk is a 2000 New Zealand romantic fantasy film. It was directed by New Zealand actor and director Harry Sinclair.


In rural New Zealand, a farmer, Rob (Karl Urban), gets engaged to his love, Lucinda (Danielle Cormack). However, Lucinda is worried about their relationship losing its spark and she continues pushing him away to try to keep the spark alive.

A string of quilt thefts have been occurring around town and when Lucinda finds hers, she is curious and reckless when she trades Rob's cows, worth NZ$400,000, for it. Rob is beyond words in his rage and loses his voice as he drives away, leaving Lucinda to worry for days before their planned wedding.


The Price of Milk was directed by New Zealand actor and director Harry Sinclair.[1]


An English reviewer called it "A weird but very funny little film, comparable in its bizarreness to Being John Malcovich(sic)."[2]
