The central character of Robyn Davidson was portrayed by two actresses. They were Lily Pearl as the young Robyn and Mia Wasikowska as the older Robyn. See more »
Robyn drops her compass, a personal heirloom and crucial navigational tool. When she notices this, she retraces her tracks some significant distance and finds it. As soon as she finds it, she becomes unable to follow the now-doubly-traveled tracks back to rejoin her camels (even with her compass) relying on her dog to lead her. See more »
Dear sir, I am planning to walk across the Australian desert from Alice Springs to the Indian Ocean. A distance of 2,000 miles. The trip will take six to seven months. There are herds of feral camels roaming freely throughout Central Australia, and my idea was to capture a few and train them to carry my gear.

The initial credits are shown over original photos from the "Tracks" book and the National Geographic article. The photos, taken by Rick Smolan, show Robyn Davidson during the actual walk. See more »
Tracks follows other films about individuals pushing limits and seeking purpose and adventure. It is tastefully and cleverly executed with talented performance by the lead Mia Wasikowska.
Two short points about this movie.
1) It is exceptional for its ability to draw you into the journey across the desert. Some of the hallucinations etc are tedious but necessary to fill gaps as there are not many characters. The cinematography does the desert and journey justice.
2) In a largely male dominated genre finally a female inspires as the lead character of a adventure story.
