Tracks (film) at the Little Theatre Cinema

Based on Robyn Davidson’s bestselling account of her 1,700-mile camel trek across the Australian desert to the Indian Ocean in 1977, John Curran’s atmospheric film is a testimony to both the determination of the human spirit and the harshness of nature.
As Davidson, Mia Wasikowska (JANE EYRE, STOKER) continues her starry rise; her performance radiates single-mindedness, but is not without sensitivities, particularly in her ambiguous relationship with the National Geographic photographer who erratically records her odyssey (Driver, INSIDE LLEWYN DAVIS).
The cruel beauty of the desert, and the fortitude of the people and creatures that manage to live within it, are also brilliantly evoked by Curran and ace cinematographer Mandy Walker (LANTANA), often to almost dreamlike effect.

Suggest we meet beforehand for a drink if people would like to? Best wishes, Louisa x

    Hi, I got h8 so and when i was there 9/10 were also free altho they wouldnt let me hold it for our group. I can only suggest people get what tickets they can and if necessary we'll see if we can shuffle around when we get there. If anyone is not planning to meet at the cinema at 7.45 could you leave a message please so we know not to wait. Thanks and enjoy the nice sunny day, Louisa

    Hi folks, I would suggest buying tickets in advance if you can, usually at the Little they aren't numbered seats so we should be able to sit together. But obviously you can always take the risk and try and get a ticket on the door. Can I suggest those that would like to go for drink beforehand meet outside the cinema at 7.45?

    Hi Louisa,
    Thanks for putting this on…can I play it by ear to see how the day goes? If anyone wanted to go dancing at the Common Room after from about 10pm (good fun) I've just emailed some people too to see who might like to join :)

      Hi Marietta, that's fine with me, just turn up (or not!) if it's easier. I'll see if I have any energy afterwards for the Common Room.

    Do we need to buy tickets in advance? Sounds like a really interesting film.
