The latest trailer for director John Curran’s “Tracks,” about a young woman’s treacherous journey across the wilds of the West Australian desert and starring the sublime Mia Wasikowska, has landed. Release date via distributor The Weinstein Company forthcoming.
A hit at Venice and Telluride, this is Curran’s first film since the tepid thriller “Stone” (2010). Before that, he directed the lush weepie “The Painted Veil” (2006) and the elegant adultery drama “We Don’t Live Here Anymore” (2004). Written by Marion Nelson from Robyn Davidson’s autobiographical book, “Tracks” costars Adam Driver (eep!). Julia Roberts was originally circling the role of Davidson, 27 at the time of the film’s events, until Wasikowska nabbed it.
