“Tracks” is a 2013 Australian drama film directed by John Curran, based on Robyn Davidson's memoir “Tracks”. The movie stars Mia Wasikowska as Robyn Davidson, an Australian woman who undertakes a 1,700-mile journey through the Australian desert with her four camels and dog.
In 1977, Robyn Davidson, a young woman from the city, sets out to trek through the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean with her four camels and dog. Along the way, she meets several people, including National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver), who documents her journey. The journey is a test of her physical and mental strength, as she faces harsh weather conditions, dangerous animals, and the loneliness of the desert.
“Tracks” received positive reviews from critics, who praised the film's stunning cinematography and Mia Wasikowska's performance. The movie was described as a beautiful, thoughtful, and inspiring tale of self-discovery, with a strong focus on the importance of the natural world. Some critics noted that the film could be slow-paced at times, but overall, it was considered a compelling and engaging story.
The film was nominated for several awards, including the Australian Academy of Cinema and Television Arts Awards for Best Film, Best Direction, Best Adapted Screenplay, and Best Actress for Mia Wasikowska. The movie also won the Platform Prize at the Toronto International Film Festival and the Best Original Music Score Award at the Film Critics Circle of Australia Awards.
