Went to see it Turkey Day. I was expecting a sweeping romance and a bit of history. Considering the selection this Tday weekend, there is not much to choose from for adults wanting something else besides animation and shootem ups. I was very pleasantly surprised. The movie is about 2 hrs and 45 minutes long, you really didn't feel that until the last 45 minutes where the pace and the focus of the movie change and I felt the pace kinda slowed down. While I don't really remember ever seeing a Nicole Kidman movie she was fantastic here and Hugh Jackman was too. That man can fill out a pair of jeans like nobodies business. He is now on my nightly "to dream about" list. The setting is Australia in 1939. The start of the film is very much a western set in Australia with a romance thrown in. I really like that the narrator of this movie is a young aboriginal half caste boy. I wanted to adopt him. There is an underlying theme of how badly the aboriginal natives were treated and there is blantant prejudice in the movie. Overage I like the film and the transformation of Lady Sarah. Definitely an A-/B+.
