Watch: Full US Trailer for the Wonderful 'Tracks' with Mia Wasikowska
"When people ask why I'm doing it, my usual answer is: why not." The Weinstein Company has unveiled their full theatrical US trailer for the film Tracks, from director John Curran (The Painted Veil), starring Mia Wasikowska as explorer Robyn Davidson, who hiked her way solo across the Australian Outback. It's a wonderful, extraordinary, beautiful adventure about the incredible journey of one woman, and it's a compelling and inspiring film to boot. Adam Driver co-stars, but it's mostly all Wasikowska and her dogs and camels. The trailer features M83's "Outro" and is basically a recut of the first international trailer from last year, but I'm still happy to highlight this film. In my TIFF review I called it a "beautiful, beautiful film."
Here's the latest theatrical trailer for John Curran's Tracks, originally from Yahoo:
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 in the US soon, but still needs its date.
Wow. This looks splendid.

Got to see this. Mia is so wonderful an actress - definitely looks like something for the big screen.

Looks fantastic, I hope this shows in Milwaukee. Is it getting a wide release?

I saw it this past weekend here in Australia and was very disappointed. It's very well shot and Mia's performance was fine but the movie itself was dull and uninspiring. Scenes of tension were severely underplayed. Don't get me wrong, it's not a bad film, there's a few good scenes and there are certainly many worse Australian movies launch as Japanese Story or Somersault. It's just that after waiting so many years for so many different people who've attempted to bring Robyn Davidson's story to the screen I felt like it was such a let down. It missed utterly the dynamic from the book that made her such a compelling character. She comes across as a whiney pain in the arse. At the end of the movie, she reaches the ocean and it's just...oh, is that it? The movie just ends, nothing special. Just a bit of a stroll through the Outback. The story demanded more. Current underplayed it wayyy to much.

I finally was able to go see the film - it was like walking through a dream, very beautiful and powerful, almost like a trance. Mia Wasikowska is terrific - totally believable and heart breaking. I want to go see it again in a few days. It captures the spirit of Australia.
