Review: Although the movie is quite deep and meaningful, I couldn't help getting a bit bored with watching someone walk for bloody miles. You don't really get a chance to connect with the main character because the movie jumps right in from the get go. I was waiting for something to happen throughout the movie, but the movie stays in the same tone and doesn't get that interesting. I don't think that the leading actress, Wasikowska, was the best choice for the role because she lacks emotion or the ability to really connect to anyone. In all, the movie does drag after a while and I did find it pretty boring. Average!
Round-Up: I'm glad that they showed the real lady, in the bonus footage, who went through this tremendous ordeal, because I found that more interesting than the whole movie. When you hear about her true life journey it really does bring to light her achievement, against all odds. The whole camel and dog aspect to her journey was quite amazing, but I really don't think that this movie done the true story any justice. Wasikowska, who has also starred in Alice in Wonderland and Lawless, doesn't really change throughout her journey, which is quite surprising because of the many different people that help her along her way. I honestly blame the director more than the actress because he could have made the film more intense and dramatic.
