Australia - 20th Century Fox (Blu-Ray)
A romantic action-adventure epic!
After inheriting a large ranch in Australia, an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle drover (Hugh Jackman) to protect her land from nearby cattle barons plotting to take it. Together they experience four life-altering years, a love affair and the bombing of Darwin during World War II.
Set in Australia on the brink of World War II, Lady Sarah Ashley (Kidman), travels to the faraway continent where she has inherited a cattle ranch, owned by her late husband. When Australian cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn local known as The Drover (Jackman) to drive 2,000 head of cattle across hundreds of miles of the countrys most unforgiving land, only to still face the bombing of Darwin by the Japanese forces that had attacked Pearl Harbor. When tragedy strikes and Lady Sarah becomes unofficial guardian to a half-caste boy, the unlikely couple must come to terms with a prejudiced society, dishonorable business associates and the impending arrival of the Japanese.
