At almost three hours long, Australia was conceived along the lines of old-fashioned Hollywood epics like Gone with the Wind. Nicole Kidman plays a genteel lady with a cattle ranch to manage and Hugh Jackman is her rugged love interest. As the title suggests, it's set in Australia, in the 1940s, though it's a long way from anything you'll read about in the history books. Directed by Baz Lurhman, the man responsible for such high camp genius as Romeo + Juliet and Moulin Rouge, it's a film that does everything big and lavish, including romantic swoons, cattle stampedes, incredible landscapes and more fabulous costume changes than a Broadway musical.
