Disenchanted with civilization and longing for solitude, a woman leaves everything behind and sets off on a 1,700-mile trek across the Australian desert, accompanied only by her trusty dog, four camels and tag-along National Geographic photographer Rick. Based on Robyn Davidson’s internationally bestselling memoir, this 2013 Australian drama is a beautifully rendered saga of a woman’s spiritual and physical journey through the wilderness. Mia Wasikowska delivers an authentically rugged portrayal as the fiercely independent and guarded heroine.
