  The Chatter Box : Blathering On
Australia by Miss-M on 30 November 2008 10:09pm
Have any Palinites seen the film "Australia" yet? I saw it yesterday and I must admit that it was better than I expected. I imagined it would be a cheesy, cliche-filled ode to the Outback, but it was surprisingly touching. The cinematography is breathtaking! It made me want to pack my swag and head up to the billabong with a cold one.

Oh, and I advise everyone to see the film, because Kazzzz and I are in it!!!

The country, that is - not the film ;)

Our movie critics have only given it 1 1/2 stars, Missy. I was shocked. But I said to Larry that the cinematography alone would probably be well worth a ticket. I also understand the costume designs are fantastic.
Maybe it will win some awards for some sort of artistic value, if nothing else.

No, I haven't seen it.

I read a review on it a few weeks ago and I seem to remember it praised the cinematography and Australia itself as being the real star , rather than the acting or the plot.

I thought of seeing it. I would be curious, knowing little about Australia.
