It’s rare that hubby and I get to sit down and watch a movie together, particularly one that runs for almost 3 hours. I’ve been wanting to see the romantic drama Australia since it was released on DVD/Blu-ray on March 3. The other night we finally sat down to watch it. This inspiring story about overcoming impossible odds captivates the heart and provides an interesting look into the history of a country’s origins. The cinematography is stunning and reawakens my longing to experience Australia’s diverse landscape. I don’t want to give too much away, but here is a little more information u the movie if you’re not familiar with it:
Helmed by Australian native and Academy Award nominee Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge!, Romeo + Juliet) and starring Oscar winner Nicole Kidman (Moulin Rouge!, The Hours) and Golden Globe-nominee Hugh Jackman (X-Men trilogy, The Prestige), this grand-scale journey, set against the Australian outback, follows an English aristocrat who travels to the faraway continent where she meets a rough-hewn local and reluctantly agrees to join forces with him to save a sprawling cattle ranch she inherited from her late husband. Together, they embark upon a journey across hundreds of miles of the world’s most beautiful yet unforgiving terrain, only to face the enemy Japanese forces.
Australia is available now on DVD and Blu-ray. You can purchase a Walmart “Exclusive” edition of the DVD which features special packaging to encompass the glossy Australia picture book inside for $19.96.
