YOO Movie TODAY: Australia!
Come out to the Hoke O' Kelley room in the Administration building at 2pm today to see the old-fashioned, sweeping epic Australia. Set in pre-World War II Australia, the movie stars Nicole Kidman as an English aristocrat who inherits a cattle ranch in Australia. In order to protect her new property, she is forced to team with rugged cattle drover Hugh Jackman to drive her 2,000 head of cattle across the (equally rugged) outback. Their journey puts them on a direct course with the bombing of Darwin, Australia, by Japanese forces.
Funk Heritage Center director Dr. Joe Kitchens will be onhand to introduce the movie and answer any questions.
