Tracks: Adam Driver and Mia Wasikowska

In 1977, a young Australian woman, desperate to strip away the noise and artifice of life, set out on a 1,700-mile trek across the Australian desert with just four camels and her beloved dog for company.
Robyn Davidson chronicled her emotional adventure in the best-selling 1980 memoir Tracks.  Over the years, there have been numerous attempts to translate Davidson’s quest to film, with Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman  at various points.
Almost 35 years later, anchored by a near-solo performance by Mia Wasikowska, Tracks has finally completed its own epic journey to the big screen.
John Curran also cast a non-English-speaking aboriginal elder playing Davidson’s guide for a brief stretch of her trip.
Adam Driver plays Rick Smolan, the National Geographic photographer hired to shoot milestones on her expedition.
The movie suggests that at times a person discovers herself only when she steps outside her everyday existence.
Length: 110 Minutes
