The Aussie travel-by-camel adventure Tracks still hasn’t found a U.S. release date, but it does have going for it a newly cut trailer.
Everyting we previously wrote about the film still holds true: The adaptation of Robyn Davidson’s memoir, which recounts her nine-month, 2000-mile journey across the Australian desert, looks like a star vehicle for Mia Wasikowska (Jane Eyre, Stoker, the upcoming Only Lovers Left Alive). Wasikowska plays Davidson and Adam Driver co-stars as a National Geographic photographer, as the trek was funded (reluctantly on Davidson’s part) by the magazine.
In the trailer, Davidson is told by men, “Your plan is ridiculous,” “You must be mad, girlie,” “You want to die out there or something?” With its lead sun-burned and dirt-streaked, the film looks like it’ll put forth an alternate vision of glamour — one that finds joy and meaning in solitude and self-sufficiency.
The film will open in the U.K. on April 25.
