The first trailer for the drama Tracks has gone online. John Curran‘s film is based on the true story of Robyn Davidson (played by Mia Wasikowska), who in 1975 decided to walk from Alice Springs in Central Australia all the way to the Indian Ocean, a distance of approximately 1,700 miles. I caught the film at Toronto and found it to be a disappointing slog, but other critics I spoke to were enthusiastic about the picture. If I hadn’t seen the movie, this trailer would lead me to believe Tracks is exciting and emotional. This trailer does not have her training camels for two years.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. The film also stars Adam Driver as a National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who periodically checked in with Davidson because the publication was sponsoring her trip. The Weinstein Company has distribution rights for Tracks, but there’s currently no release date.
