Reviews
Mine: Luhrmann attempts something very ambitious here and does a decent, if not great job. The big romantic historical epic has very seldom been done well, here we see how hard it is. Overall this was enjoyable, if a bit long. Beautiful people, beautiful scenery, an epic struggle against several evils; it is all a bit over wrought, but that is the genre!
Leonard Maltin/Plot synopsis: Set in northern Australia before World War II, an English aristocrat who inherits a sprawling ranch reluctantly pacts with a stock-man in order to protect her new property from a takeover plot. As the pair drive 2,000 head of cattle over unforgiving landscape, they experience the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces firsthand.
