This is a story for women. If you live or have experienced the desert, you can connect with this story. Written as a romantic adventure, full of life and sadness, this movie tells a story that is subtle, not raw, nor, overly dramatized. It is a modern account with elements that are reminiscent of an older style of cinema. Tactile a full of beauty, Kidman's representation of Bell is simple and her prose lingers in your mind once the film has ended. 'Queen of the Desert' is, simply put, a very enjoyable adventure and, a representation of a strong, intelligent and formidable woman.
This film is a poignant picture of a past that is little remembered beyond the borders of the desert region. Perhaps, it paints an image of the past that few choose to recognize or remember but, it is, albeit, an interesting an poignant one.
