The Sunday Telegraph (Sydney) - TV Guide - - Week In Movies - AUS­TRALIA 8.30PM, TEN

Of­ten very good, but falls short of be­ing truly great. There are times where di­rec­tor Baz Luhrmann’s fre­netic mash-up of styles bar­rels past some­thing for ev­ery­one and threat­ens to be­come too much for any­one. Though Aus­tralia is in essence a sweep­ing ro­man­tic epic a la Gone with the Wind, it is also a screw­ball com­edy, an out­back western and a mil­i­tary ac­tion flick. Ni­cole Kid­man plays a prissy English aris­to­crat who falls for Hugh Jack­man’s mav­er­ick drover dur­ing a marathon cat­tle drive to Dar­win in the late 1930s.
