Tracks Movie Review for Parents

-by Ginger Shelby

All a girl needs in life is her faithful dog, her trusty camel and a 1,700 mile dessert, right? Well, at first it might seem that way if you are Robyn. Robyn decides to set out across the Australian desert on a journey of self-discovery and adventure. This parental guide to the movies thinks Tracks is one adventure that you might want to see with family, but it may not be for the little ones. It is an adult adventure.

The plot is simple, it is about a lady walking across the vast Australian desert alone. It is a personal journey of discovery that is filled with adventure. There are some dangerous scenes and an exceptionally large, dangerous snake crawling across her neck when she sleeps, but let's not digress. She also falls in love and there are some embraces and kisses. The focus of the movie is on what she discovers along the way about herself. The love story is secondary to the plot.

The only potentially objectionable scenes in this movie involve the main character appearing partially naked, or in knickers. These scenes are not sexually oriented. There is a small amount of drinking, but not overt. There is no profanity in the movie. However, a few camels are shot and shown dying. This is not a gory scene, but there is a small amount of blood shown. There are a few frightening scenes, but only enough to make it a good story.

The theme is that life should be full of adventure. It is about breaking the rules that society has set for young women. It is a story of discovering oneself and challenging oneself to be more than the "normal" world has to offer. It is about seeing it all and being it all. This kid's movie review rates this one as an excellent film for those in the family over the age of 10, but with the caution that there might not be enough action to keep them interested. This is a deep and thoughtful movie that might be a little too deep for the younger ones. There are lots of scenes of just walking across the desert with camels, nothing more, just walking in the hot sun.
