Jump to: Spoilers (1)
There have been many attempts to bring Robyn Davidson's adventure memoir to the big screen. Over the years both Julia Roberts and Nicole Kidman have been attached to the lead role. Development on the movie adaptation began before lead actress Mia Wasikowska was even born.
Despite sharing most of her scenes with the camels, Mia Wasikowska was only given three days in a "camel boot camp". One of the instructors was Robyn Davidson herself.
Seven snakes were brought to set. Among them, Mia Wasikowska had to hand-pick which one she would prefer to share scenes with.
It took nine months for Robyn Davidson to travel from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean.
The book Rick is reading in the car at the end of the movie is Robert A. Heinlein's "Tunnel in the Sky" - about a group of people trying to live on an desolated, uninhabited planet.
This is cinematographer Mandy Walker's second film set in the Australian outback. She previously lensed Australia (2008).
