Spoiler Alert !

Some of these pictures and descriptions may give away plot details that you might not want to know before watching the film.
In this movie based on a true story, we watch a young woman walk through the Austrailan desert for over 1,700 miles in an area full of beautiful desert reptiles but we don't see a single one until late in the film when her dog dies and she sleeps late because she's depressed. She's sleeping in the open under a dead tree on a dry lake bed when we see a large carpet python crawling around her neck for no other reason than to creep us out with another portrayal of a snake as dangerous disgusting. They even show the scene on the trailer with the caption "face your fears." I don't know about you, but having a pet store python crawl on me doesn't rank up there with my worst fears. And that kind of snake isn't even found in west-central Australia where she was travelling. Despite all that, it's a very good film with lots of great scenery and camel action and another excellent performance by Mia Wasikowska.
