The film - which is at times heartbreaking and confronting, and then thrilling and humorous - shares the stories of Aboriginal culture, the stolen generation, the Bombing of Darwin, and the transformative power of love. Darwin's historic Stokes Hill Wharf can be seen throughout the film, which begins in the late 1930s.
Australia is the story of Lady Sarah Ashley, an English, aristocratic woman who leaves England to follow her husband to Australia. He is in Australia with the intention of selling his cattle station the size of Belgium. However, Lady Ashley believes he is having an affair and travels out there to confront him. The property is in the north of Australia, when she gets there she finds out that her husband has been killed. Lady Ashley intends to still sell until she finds out that the guys who had been running the farm was bad. then her and the Drover and the rest of the staff which includes an 11 year old aborginal boy Nullah, drive the cattle to Darwin were the army captian is buying cattle, they make it to Darwin with there cattle. Then three years later Darwin gets bombed by the Japanese only months after they bombed Pearl harbor.
I really like that the movie incorparates the Stolen Generation. The Stolen Generation is a term used to describe those children of Australian Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander descent who were removed from their families by the Australian Federal and State government agencies and church missions, under acts of their respective parliaments. The removals occurred in the period between approximately 1869 and 1969, although in some places children were still being taken in the 1970s. Nullah tells the story of the Stolen generation and what happened and what it was like.
Nicole Kidman plays Lady Sarah Ashley
Hugh Jackman plays The Drover
