Starring: Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver, Lily Pearl
Directed By: John Curran
Written By: Marion Nelson (Screenplay), Robyn Davidson (Novel)
I guess by now, we can expect that at least one film a year will be about someone’s struggling, isolated travels. Though, unlike Life of Pi and All Is Lost, Robyn Davidson’s (Wasikowska) rough journey was by choice. Tracks follows the true story of Davidson as she treks 1,700 miles across the Australian desert with four camels and her faithful dog. Since National Geographic ends up sponsoring her trip, Robyn agrees to the monthly drop-in of the magazine’s pestering photographer Rick Solman (Adam Driver), who must take pictures of her progress.
Unfortunately, this film does lack a certain amount of excitement that we would expect from most dangerous adventures. Nevertheless, Tracks portrays an authentic voyage that is heightened by its stunning cinematography and the brilliant performances led by Wasikowska and Driver.
