Australia is an Amazing Film!

I saw Australia last night starring Hugh Jackman and Nicole Kidman.  If you are looking for a great night out with your friends or fam or whatever you will enjoy this film for sure.  It's on an epic level and has everything from action, adventure, romance, and even has politically correct themes in it that discuss race.  I really believe there should be more movies out there like Australia that discuss race and ignorance and histories that a lot of the world isn't aware of.  I really believe racism can be reduced by exposure.  Australia touches on a lot of issues of the European settlers and the Aborigines (Black native people to Australia).  This movie is packed with emotion and there is a lot of beautiful scenery of Australia through out the film.  Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman did fantastic work and the young Aborigine boy Brandon Walters really did his thing and captured the audience's hearts.  I wish I could get out of America and explore other cultures soon.  I definitely want to learn more about Aborigines because their culture seems very in touch with nature and though they have been marginalized in Australia and were previously forced to assimilate into European religion and culture they stay faithful to their culture.  I can't wait to get out and see this world man.  Its more than black and white and there's so much out there.  Check out Australia!
