In this epic directed by Baz Luhrmann, Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Rather than sell her late husband's rundown Australian cattle station so that she can resume her life in London on the brink of WWII, a young widow embarks on an arduous cattle drive to keep the place running, and not only falls in love with her loner manager, but become a surrogate mother to a half-caste aboriginal boy.




  • Truly Dreadful

    Portentious, tacky, risible script, appalling cgi, drags on interminably. Each moment of it, feels like fingernails down a blackboard.

    Cheesy but worth it. Hugh Jackman is the sexiest man alive and Nicole Kidman is great as al ways. Makes you want to go and live with the Aborigines. Absolutely loved it.
  • Great

    It has all the ingredients of a great movie, fantasy, adventure, drama, landscape, humor and tears. The 3 hrs were a pleasure and not a chore like some epics.

    Cheap, naff, utterly hackneyed sentimental clap trap. If you're expecting an ozzie take on 'Far and Away' prepare to be sorely disappointed. The potential of this film was phenomenal - the cadre, the cast and the plot were all there. The delivery almost defies disbelief. If you want proper camp rent 'Priscilla', if you want proper comedy rent 'Crocodile Dundee' and if you want real ozzie drama rent 'A Cry In The Dark'. Ozzie films can be great. Apparently this one caved under the pressure to deliver.
