I loved it!

After all the hype, I had to see it.
I'm talking about the movie "Australia".

Here's the trailer if you haven't yet seen it.

I went tonight and saw it, and loved it.
Made me cry 3 times, but it was worth it....the whole 3 hrs of it!
They had some funny bits, some sad bits and plenty of drama.
Hugh is great eye candy, and Nicole always does a great job.
The little boy who plays "Nulla" has a big future ahead of him. He was fabulous!

When on holiday in the Whitsundays in May 2007, Jase and I drove up to Bowen to see the "pub" featured in the film as Darwin in the late 1930 - early 1940's. It looked exactly the same, and seeing what Bowen looked like during filming, I can see where they digitally enhanced the ocean and the jetty is a lot longer than it really is. It's amazing what they can do.
We watched them run the cattle through town the day we were there, and loved that scene...very cool!

Here's my pic I took of the pub back then!

So, I'd give it the big thumbs up, if you haven't seen it.

Chat soon,
Chelle Xx

I am so glad to see someone else who loved this movie including nicole. I really like her and everyone seems to be so harsh.
