Australia is a riveting 2008
movie that stars Nicole Kidman and Hugh Jackman. Set in the city of Darwin in the Northern
Territory of Australia,
the movie tells about
the roaring outback adventure of an Englishwoman named
Lady Sarah Ashley and the male protagonist of the story,
named ... Drover.
Among the quotes from this
engaging movie are as follows: 'The Territory' was a land of crocodiles, cattle
barons and warrior chiefs where adventure and romance was
a way of life.
It was also a place where aboriginal children of
mixed-race were taken by force from their families and
trained for service in white society. These children
became known as 'The Stolen Generations'.
Grandfather teach'em me most important lesson of all -
See, I not black fella. I not white fella either. Them
white fellas call me Mixed-blood, Half-caste, Creamy.
King George say them white fellas bad spirit... must
be taken from this land.
The mixed-race children must be dislocated from the
primitive, full-blood Aborigine.
How else are we to breed the black out of them?
It is a fact of science that the Aboriginal mother soon
forgets her offspring.
No mother forgets her child, Dr Barker!
There it is. First storm of the Wet... It's beautiful.
There's millions of birds. Creeks turn into rivers, dry
plains into lakes.
