The fall festivals aren’t only about prestige films being groomed for a chance at an Oscar. There are also plenty of acquisitions, and some of those acquisitions can quickly be turned around into awards, a recent example being The King’s Speech. According to The Wrap, The Weinstein Company, the Oscar-hungry distributor behind King’s Speech, has now made the 2013 festival season’s first major acquisition with John Curran‘s Tracks. The film is based on the true story of Robyn Davidson (played by Mia Wasikowska), who in 1977 set out on a solo 2,700-kilometre journey by foot across the Australian Outback following the collapse of her marriage and the death of her mother. The movie premiered at the Venice Film Festival, played at the Telluride Film Festival this weekend, and will then move on to the Toronto International Film Festival.
