A romantic action-adventure epic set in Australia prior to World War II that centers on an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) who inherits a large ranch. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman) to protect her ranch. Together they experience four life-altering years, a love affair and the bombing of Darwin during World War II.

    iTunes would not finish downloading this movie. All attempts to follow links to contact and report a problem were a wild goose chase. I was never given the ability to report the problem. I will not buy movies from iTunes if this is their service!
  • An epic tale

    I don’t know why it’s taken me so many years to watch this. It was a breathtakingly epic film. Kidman and Jackman SIZZLE. I almost stopped watching in the beginning but it became a true gem so don’t give up after the somewhat camp and theatrical start, it gets really good. A beautiful Australian story, I hadn’t hear about the military history of Darwin.

    At the beginning Nicole Kidman is playing satire over the top. Then towards the middle of the movie she tries to change to balance Hugh Jackmon’s actual sincere acting. So this movie is weird. It is therefore disjointed but still enjoyable, if you have patience with its shortcomings. Without giving anything away, it’s fun despite the cliches and the stories we’ve seen before. One isn’t quite clear about what the director is doing and trying to achieve.

    I hate to say it, but NK face is so disstracting how can anyone take her serious. She's like the new michael Jackson or something. Overacted in everyway..Huge Jackman was great for what the script called for. But way to cartoonish.....
  • Beautiful-instant classic

    This movie is amazing!! With the chemistry between the actors, the amazing scenery and music it should have won every award out there!!! You need to see this movie, it's beautiful and is form of apology to the stolen generations of Australia... You need to see this, it keeps you guessing till the end.

  • Absolutely loved it!

    I cried, I laughed & I loved it. Made me so proud to be Australian & I sat there wondering (& hoping) why there are not more outback type movies are made. It had the feel of a good US Western, but in the Outback instead. Yes it's kitsch in places, mainly in the beginning. And Yes it is an awesome & involving cross cultural story, complete with smultz which is enjoyable when the balance is right, like here. Highly recommend!
  • Wonderful

  • contrived garbage!

    As an Australian living in the United States, I was eager to see this as my American friends were all talking about it. I was pretty horrified by this depiction of Australian life. The acting was pretty atrocious too....all in all an embarrassment! I'm sure many other Aussies would feel the same way too. Sorry!
