Lots of people dug Hugh Jackman as the Oscar host, and now you can watch the Australian playing an Australian in a movie called Australia right in your own home. Director Baz Luhrmann (Moulin Rouge) is well-known for his lush visual style, and it’s certainly present in this romantic epic adventure saga, also starring Nicole Kidman as the uptight English maiden who must shed her propriety in order to manage her late husband’s ranch in the Outback. Jackman is quite charismatic as the ruggedly handsome drover who helps her to get her cattle across the treacherous terrain in time to save her business… but all hell breaks loose when they get there, and the devastation of World War II reaches the island’s shores.
