The above image is the latest (first? I haven't seen anything else yet) image from Baz Luhrman's epic-in-waiting, Australia. I have to tell you, it kind of disturbs me. Why is Jackman pressing down so forcefully on Nicole's forehead? Doesn't that look painful? It can't be good for her vertebrae, I'll say that. Also, why is she looking up at him like she's ten years old and he's her dad? And if so, why doesn't she put her boobs away? I'm utterly creeped out. Apparently, so is the horse. It can't even look!
I know Baz is partial to the weirdness, but the twin themes of incest and scoliosis aren't really what I'm looking for in a historical epic.
