Bran Nue Dae

Bran Nue Dae is a charming new Australian-based, music-driven road movie/romantic comedy starring Academy Award winner Geoffrey Rush that literally bursts onto the screen with unbridled energy and fun. Loosely based on one of Australia's most beloved and popular musicals, Bran Nue Dae is a foot stomping tour-de-force centering on the romantic adventures of a young aboriginal couple set against the spectacularly beautiful Australian landscape.

If you were underwhelmed by “Australia,’’ Baz Luhrmann’s arid, ardent tribute to the romantic epic, Aborigines, and the charismatic white people who employ them, you might have thought what I did: This movie needs a musical number. It’s possible that one reason it didn’t have one was that Luhrmann didn’t own the rights to the most apt songs. One of the country’s most popular entertainments is a show from the 1990s called “Bran Nue Dae.’’ It was set in 1969 and conceived as a celebration of Aboriginality during more than a century of government oppression. Its anthem was a tune whose chorus includes the lyric, “There’s nothing I would rather be than to be an Aborigine and watch you take my precious land away.’’
