Australia Synopsis

A romantic action-adventure set in northern Australia prior to World War II, Australia centers on an English aristocrat (Kidman) who inherits a ranch the size of Maryland. When English cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver (Jackman) to drive 2000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the country's most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin, Australia by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor only months earlier. With his new film, Luhrmann is painting on a vast canvas, creating a cinematic experience that brings together romance, drama, adventure and spectacle.

Green Lantern Production May Have To Ditch Australia Green Lantern Production May Have To Ditch Australia
Plenty of movie productions, even those with no connections to Australia at all, have trucked off Down Under to take advantage of the country's tax breaks for film production. The Green Lantern was going to be one of them, but apparently the tax breaks might not be as lucrative as they seem

Last fall Baz Luhrmann introduced us to the notion of a period drama set Down Under, and even though Australia didn't exactly set the box office on fire, man were those costumes gorgeous. And maybe we'll get a second chance with Spider Dance

EIFF 09: Van Diemen's Land EIFF 09: Van Diemen's Land
Part true story, part grim survival horror, Van Diemen's Land suffers from a problem shared by many films at the festival this year in that it is overlong and repetitive.

EIFF 09: Long Weekend EIFF 09: Long Weekend
Long Weekend wants to be a taut psychological horror but when all is said and done it is just another muddled remake hampered by an absence of logic and unlikable characters. The supernatural card is played, as it all too often
