From Africa to Oz

We couldn't help notice the similarity between Out of Africa and Australia.

A strong willed woman displaced from one country to another, so faraway in both distance and culture. The safari and tents camped overnight where love and a dance blossoms. The race issue. The dashing and enigmatic young man who would not stay put. The bar where only men are allowed except until she has proven herself worthy.

Buz Luhrmann this movie ain't. We were all hoping for some kind of Romeo and Juliet or Moulin Rouge to spring up only to be disappointed. Maybe next time Buz.
