Rhett, oh Rhett, please don't leave me...fo
Baz Luhrmann attempted to create the Australian equivalent of ''Gone With the Wind'', but most critics feel that he did not succeed. Set in the 1940s, an English aristocrat travels to Australia to take over her deceased husband's ranch. In true western style, there is a local bigshot baddie intent on cornering the beef market, and her farm is his next target. She ropes in a local drover to help her drive a herd to market, and they get to know each other well along the way. Throw in a mixed-race adoptee and Japanese bombing campaigns, and all the necessary ingredients are in place for a sweeping epic, which borrows from many other famous movies of the past.
