Movie with Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Nicole comes to Australia to meet with her husband Lord Ashley to sell their cattle station. Hugh Jackman is a cattle drover hired on by Lord Ashley. Set at the onset of World War II, the movie quickly sets the storyline in the first half-hour.

That is, Nicole's husband is murdered, Nicole inherits the cattle station and decides not to sell it, and then Nicole working with Hugh and others make an effort to turn the business around. Also, viewers quickly learn that assimilation of aborigines is not condoned by Australian law.

Safe first date movie. Not a block-buster movie but not a bad one either. Save it for a cold and rainy day when everything is already checked out.-JM
