Trivia

Despite sharing most of her scenes with the camels, Mia Wasikowska was only given three days in a "camel boot camp". One of the instructors was Robyn Davidson herself. See more »

Goofs

Robyn drops her compass, a personal heirloom and crucial navigational tool. When she notices this, she retraces her tracks some significant distance and finds it. As soon as she finds it, she becomes unable to follow the now-doubly-traveled tracks back to rejoin her camels (even with her compass) relying on her dog to lead her. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Robyn: Dear sir, I am planning to walk across the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean. A distance of 2,000 miles. The trip will take six to seven months. There are herds of feral camels roaming freely throughout Central Australia, and my idea was to capture a few and train them to carry my gear.

There is more to the desert than meets the eye.
27 April 2014 | by bigmystery23See all my reviews

I had been very excited about this movie after seeing the trailer. The story is exhilarating and after watching movies like "Into the Wild" and "127 Hours," I was waiting to see what was in store. As I sat down in my seat to see this at the San Francisco Film Festival I decided to erase all anticipation of the movie and just sit. The lights dimmed down, the audience shuffled into comfortable positions, and then began the movie. Almost two hours passed, and the film's credits began. The audience sat in their seats, myself included. We were mesmerized by John Curran's adaptation, Mia Wasikowska's tremendous performance, and Mandy Walker's impeccably/beautifully captured imagery. What stood out to me the most, though, was the perspectives of isolation and companionship. Marion Nelson did a fantastic job at taking the elements of the autobiography that gave us those perspectives, and as we watched Mia struggle through the desert with her four camels, dog, and occasionally the photographer (played by a genuine Adam Driver), we all began to understand her points of views in life as well as ourselves. So much motif was done with the desert, which I have to applaud John Curran for doing. I will be seeing this film again when it is released, and I hope you will too!
