My Rating : 5/5 STARS
MovieStudio Quote >> “It’s like reliving an adventure of a lifetime. Mia Wasikowska delivers a triumphant performance with this true story!”
Director John Curran (THE PAINTED VEIL, WE DON’T LIVE HERE ANYMORE) and the producers of THE KINGS SPEECH bring you the film TRACKS, which tells the remarkable true story of Robyn Davidson (Wasikowska), a young woman who leaves her life in the city to make a solo trek through almost 2,000 miles of sprawling Australian desert.
Accompanied by only her dog and four unpredictable camels, she sets off on a life-changing journey of self-discovery. Along the way, she meets National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Driver) who begins to photograph her voyage. Mia Wasikowska stars as writer Robyn Davidson in this dramatic account of Davidson’s arduous 2000-mile trek across the Australian desert.
With only four camels and a loyal canine to keep her company on the journey from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean, Davidson discovers the value of solitude while being reminded of how it feels to be truly connected with the world.
In order to fund her epic adventure, Davidson reluctantly allows prolific National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) to capture it on film. Although at firstDavidson’s desire for solitude finds the disparate pair at odds, over time their adversarial relationship evolves into an abiding friendship.
