Becky and I went to see Australia this weekend at the AMC theaters in Highlands Ranch, CO. The Fandango website at Australia describes the movie as follows.
“An English aristocrat inherits an Australian ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver to drive 2,000-head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country’s most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier.”
The Review My Blueberry Nights film
Australia is an epic three hour film starring Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman that is about the people of Australia during World War II, which was a great deal like the Wild West. It really centers around a young native boy and his struggle of being half white and half Aboriginee, who is the story teller of the film. There was apparently a great deal of racism in Australia toward the Aboriginal people during the 1940’s.
Australia was an entertaining film that has it all. Probably because it was three hours long and like watching two or three movies rolled into one. About two hours into the movie I looked at Becky and said, “Is it over?” and she said, “There is still an hour left.” That’s the biggest problem with this movie, although it’s pretty far fetched in a number of parts as well. However, it’s still a good flick and worth the price of admission.
Becky and both liked Australia and thought it was done very well. We would recommend it and say that it was Worth The Trip. Just be prepared to sit for a long time. It’s a bit like Gone With The Wind, Australia version and takes place during World War II instead of The Civil War.
