From director John Curran (The Painted Veil, We Don't Live Here Anymore) comes TRACKS, which tells the remarkable true story of Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska), a young woman who leaves her life in the city to make a solo trek through almost 2,000 miles of sprawling Australian desert. Accompanied by only her dog and four unpredictable camels, she sets off on a life-changing journey of self-discovery. Along the way, she meets National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan (Adam Driver) who begins to photograph her voyage. The film, adapted from Davidson's own memoirs, was produced by Emile Sherman and Iain Canning (The King's Speech, Shame). "This movie, starring Mia Wasikowska as Davidson, does exactly what it’s supposed to do: It takes you deep inside her journey, both physically (you can feel the sand on your skin) and psychically." - The Globe and Mail
