The book Tracks has been made into a movie. I haven’t seen it yet, but I will try to before we go.
Here’s a link to an interview in The Guardian with Mia Wasikowska who plays the lead role as Robyn Davidson. Robyn comes across as a formidable young woman in the book, so it must have been daunting for Mia to meet her when making the film. It sounds as if Robyn has mellowed a little with age as she admits Mia does a reasonable job at acting as her twenty four year old self – despite having her doubts when they first met.
The photography in the movie is said to be stunning, so if you’re interested in what the big red bit looks like, it could be for you. I suspect the desert is the real star in this one.
Have you seen it? What did you think?
