A first trailer has arrived for John Curran's "Tracks," starring Mia Wasikowska as intrepid Robyn Davidson, who at age 26 in 1977 undertook a dangerous trek across the unforgiving Australian Outback with four camels and a dog. The film is based on Davidson's memoir of the same title; it co-stars Adam Driver as National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan.

A first trailer has arrived for John Curran's gorgeously mounted desert adventure "Tracks," starring Mia Wasikowska as intrepid Robyn Davidson, who at age 26 in 1977 undertook a dangerous 1700-mile trek across the unforgiving Australian Outback with four camels and a dog. The film is based on Davidson's memoir of the same title; it co-stars Adam Driver as National Geographic photographer Rick Smolan, who met up with Davidson at various points on her excursion. Curran explored another exotic location in 2006's excellent "Painted Veil," set in rural China.

"Tracks" debuted on the fall festival circuit earlier this season to positive reviews, and was promptly scooped up by the Weinstein Company. No word yet on a release date, but Australian Wasikowska could be a long shot for a Best Actress awards campaign if Harvey Weinstein decides to chase that goal. 

Watch a first-look clip hereThe lovely cinematography on display is by Mandy Walker ("Australia," "Red Riding Hood").
