The Screen Guide

At the outbreak of World War II an English aristocrat (Nicole Kidman) inherits a Northern Territory station in Australia’s outback. When cattle barons plot to take her land, she reluctantly joins forces with a rough-hewn cattle driver (Hugh Jackman) to drive two thousand head of cattle across the country's most unforgiving landscape, only to face the bombing of Darwin by Japanese forces.
