"When people ask me why I'm doing it, my usual answer is, 'Why not?'"
That's the explanation that Robyn Davidson (Mia Wasikowska) gives in this new trailer for "Tracks" for deciding to trek 2,000 miles from the middle of the Australian Outback to the Indian Ocean. The film is based on a true story, making Davidson's decision all the more remarkable, and director John Curran ("We Don't Live Here Anymore," "The Painted Veil") spares no detail in bringing her inspiring journey to life against the gorgeous landscape.
Davidson has detractors at every turn -- "Your plan is ridiculous," one tells her -- including Adam Driver, who plays a National Geographic photographer documenting her walk.
"You want to die out there or something?" an incredulous Driver asks.
But of course, Davidson's journey is about more than the destination, and along with snakes and sunburns, she finds herself. The movie received raves when it hit the festival circuit earlier this year; though there's no release date yet, "Tracks" should make its way onto your viewing schedule whenever it debuts.
