Mia Wasikowska stars in this inspirational true story about one woman’s extraordinary odyssey through the Australian Outback. Driven by untamed ambition but short of money, Robyn Davidson reluctantly agrees to have her solo 2.7km trek through the wilderness documented by National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Driver), with whom she begins a peripatetic relationship. Driver plays the smitten photographer with gawky sweetness, crossing Davidson’s dogged path at regular intervals to document her journey and provide occasional TLC on demand. The resulting magazine articles would become the basis for John Curran’s mesmerising film, a gloriously photographed paean to both one woman’s courage and to the magnificent land she traverses. Tracks received its UK premiere at the 2013 BFI London Film Festival.
