LaRue and I went to the movie Australia Monday night. It's a long movie at 2 1/2 hours. At first I wasn't sure what to make of it. But as the movie went along we both got caught up in the story and the characters.
The cinematography was gorgeous. Sweeping landscapes and extremely "large" camera shots.
Some of my favorite elements from the movie -
The character of King George.
The idea of the "singing" (you'll have to see the movie).
I like both Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. I thought they did a really good job. I will be surprised if this movie does get get an Academy Award nomination for something. And, yes, we will definitely be buying this DVD when it comes out.
The only complaint we had was the theater we were in. It has lousy sound - muffled and muddy. It was hard to understand all the dialog. So, I'm looking forward to seeing it again on DVD with the captioning on.
