This film tells the remarkable true story of Robyn Davidson (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 (Driver) who begins to photograph her voyage.
"3.5/4 Stars. More than a travelogue or a chronicle of self-willed solitude, director John Curran's gorgeous film version starring Mia Wasikowska betrays hardly a trace of Hollywood machinery in the storytelling." - Chicago Tribune.
"3/4 Stars. Tracks is an exhilarating adventure that opens up an unknown world to most of us and does it so well that we feel we're living it too." - Peter Travers of Rolling Stone.
3/4 Stars. I found the sprawling, wild visuals in "Tracks," and the long silences as the sunburned Robyn traverses some of the world's least hospitable lands, meditative and moving." - New York Post.
110 min., Rated PG-13.

'Elsa and Fred' is the story of two people who, at the end of the road, discover that it's never too late to love and make dreams come true. Elsa (Shirley MacLaine) has lived for the past 60 years dreaming of a moment that Fellini had already envisaged: the scene in 'La Dolce Vita' at the Fontana di Trevi. The same scene without Anita Ekberg in it, but with Elsa instead. Without Marcello Mastroiani but with that love that took so long to arrive. Fred ( Christopher Plummer) is a bit younger than Elsa and has always been a good man who did everything he was supposed to do. After losing his wife, he feels disturbed and confused and his daughter decides that it would be best if he moves into a smaller apartment where he ends meeting Elsa.
104 min., Rated PG-13.
