Tracks (2013)

Tracks
Director: John Curran
Writer: Marion Nelson
Based on: Robyn Davidson‘s autobiographic book
Cast: Mia Wasikowska, Adam Driver, Rainer Bock

Plot:
Robyn (Mia Wasikowska) dreams of getting away. And not just any kind of getting away but crossing the Australian desert with nothing but a couple of camels and her dog. But it is not easy to do that or to get any support from anyone from it, especially not as a young woman. But Robyn is persistent, manages to find her camels and funding (even if that funding means that she has to be confronted with photographer Rick (Adam Driver)) and is off across the desert.

Tracks tells an interesting story about an interesting woman. It has some pacing issues but it is good to watch.
