Baz Luhrmann’s Australia – A Review

November 26, 2008 | By | Add a Comment

The Baz Luhrmann’s epic movie Australia was originally released simultaneously in cinemas in the United States, Canada and Australia on 26th November 2008 to much fanfare.

The movie which stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman is Baz Luhrmann’s first feature film since Moulin Rouge in 2001.

According to the website www.australiamovie.net

Australia is the story of Lady Sarah Ashley (Nicole Kidman), an English, aristocratic woman who leaves England to follow her husband to Australia. He is in Australia with the intention of selling his cattle station the size of Belgium. However, Lady Ashley believes he is having an affair and travels out there to confront him. The property is in the north of Australia, and she embarks on an African Queen type journey, accompanied by a rough, hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman). Ultimately, Lady Ashley finds herself inheriting the cattle station and, in order to save it, she and the drover must undertake an epic cattle drive to Darwin. In the course of that journey, she falls in love with the drover, and the Australian landscape, and realises that her life is not over, and there’s always a new life to be had. The title Australia is intended to sum up the story of her life – her journey, the landscape, and the people she meets – all of which transform her life forever.


From my perspective the first 20 minutes was surreal and had the “Moulin Rouge” influence which appeared out of place in a movie of this “epic” nature. Once the movie calmed down and concentrated on the tale being told it was extremely enjoyable and kept my attention right through to the climatic yet predictable ending.

Overall I consider the film is one for any DVD collection.
