First Trailer for John Curran's Oz Film 'Tracks' with Mia Wasikowska
"I'm so alone." "We all are." Transmission Films has debuted the first full trailer for John Curran's Tracks, an Australian indie film telling the real life story of 27-year-old naturalist and adventurer Robyn Davidson, played by Mia Wasikowska. In 1977, Davidson hiked alone (along with four camels and her dog) across almost 1700 miles of desert through the Australian Outback. The film premiered at the Telluride, Toronto and Venice Film Festivals and earned quite a bit of healthy praise. I saw it in Toronto and fell in love with, not only the score but the incredible performance from Wasikowska (read my review). Adam Driver shows up in this too, and they use M83's "Outro" in the trailer. This film comes highly recommended. Take a look!
Starring Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker) and Adam Driver ("Girls", Frances Ha, Inside Llewyn Davis), directed by John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don't Live Here Anymore) and from the producers of The King's Speech, Tracks is based on the inspirational and iconic true story of Robyn Davidson. Robyn's phenomenal solo trek from Alice Springs to Uluru and on to the Indian Ocean saw her traverse 2,700 km of spectacular yet unforgiving Australian desert accompanied only by her loyal dog and four unpredictable camels. Set against one of the wildest, most dangerous and most breathtaking backdrops on the planet, this unprecedented journey pushed Robyn to her physical and emotional limits and taught her that sometimes we have to detach from the world to feel connected to it. In witnessing this extraordinary journey we realize that the impossible is within reach of us all. Tracks will be released early 2014, but no US date has been set.
