"Gone with the Wind down Under." that's how I discribed the new film by director Baz Luhrmann. "Australia" is a story of a woman who took over a ranch and falls for a ranch hand. Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman are great together. the best thing about this movie is watching Kidman in different outfits she wore. Every outfit is sexy. Even the granng glasses made her sexy. the film also deals with racism and war, just like the 1939 film "Gone with the Wind." some critics didn't like the movie, but I love it. One of the best films of 2008.

I am a 19 year old male who went to see it because my girlfriend wanted to. I LOVED the movie. I am going to purchase it when it comes out. I would love to see it again, and I probably will. It is probably the best movie I've seen all year. Better than Batman and perhaps even Ironman. I saw almost every movie this past summer and I thing Australia was the best!

Name almost any criteria that a viewer uses to evaluate films...and this film has it: pacing, story, photography, racial justice, mother/son bonding, love, tension, involvement (that you REALLY care about what happens to the characters), history, beautiful people, that you learn something about another place and time, etc. Wow. Wonderful film!

I have seen the Movie 4 times and am planning on seeing it again. I would compare it to Gone with the Wind. I will definitely buy the DVD and probably watch it many more times.I think it was absolutely wonderful.
