Film "TRACKS" 2014-09-02 19:00:00
Description

TRACKS

Director: John Curran   Australia, 2013, 112 minutes

Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver, Rainer Bock

“A STIRRING AND BEAUTIFULLY SHOT ACCOUNT OF THE AUTHOR ROBYN DAVIDSON’S REAL-LIFE JOURNEY BY CAMEL ACROSS THE AUSTRALIAN OUTBACK.” --Independent

A journey of arduous physical challenges and incalculable spiritual rewards is evocatively rendered in this superb adaptation. Robyn Davidson’s remarkable journey in 1977 across 1,700 miles of Australian desert to the Indian Ocean with four camels and a dog is given a richly sensorial screen treatment. Alternately haunting, inspiring and dreamily meditative, this is a visually majestic film of transfixing moods and textures. Its stealth-like emotional charge is fueled by unerring work from Mia Wasikowska, her affecting performance grounded in the fortitude and determination essential to such an undertaking, at the same time subtly keeping an open window to her character’s fragility. –The Hollywood Reporter

“TRACKS WILL LEAD YOU TO A PLACE OF QUIET WONDER.”  –The Telegraph
