Australia - Movie Synopsis & Plot

"Australia" is an epic and romantic action adventure, set in that country on the explosive brink of World War II. In it, an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) travels to the faraway continent, where she meets a rough-hewn local (Hugh Jackman) and reluctantly agrees to join forces with him to save the land she inherited. Together, they embark upon a transforming journey across hundreds of miles of the world's most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain, only to still face the bombing of the city of Darwin by the Japanese forces that attacked Pearl Harbor. With his new film, Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.

MOVIE REVIEW

Baz Luhrmann's Australia crawled its way into theaters this Thanksgiving, not exactly the grand entrance he - and 20th Century Fox - imagined when they set out to make the first epic romance in years. The $120 million can only be described as a box office failure, netting less than $20 million over the five-day frame, and the movie isn't quite good enough to garner the major awards this film was made for. Still, Australia is a strong and engaging entry from the Moulin Rouge director, and worth seeing in theaters.
