The Weinstein Co. has premiered the first trailer for Tracks, an Outback-set adventure drama starring Mia Wasikowska as a young woman on a 1,700 mile trek across the deserts of West Australia with her four camels and faithful dog. Adam Driver co-stars as National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who documented her travels.
The film was directed by John Curran, whose only films I’ve seen are Stone and We Don’t Live Here Anymore, neither of which I remember as overly compelling, but I’ve heard plenty of good things about The Painted Veil. Thing is, Curran’s work doesn’t really have a heartbeat that matches up to mine so I’m not too sure this one is going to appeal to me.
The Weinsteins have yet to announce a release date.
