Baz Luhrmann’s visionary reinterpretation of his 2008 film, “Australia,” takes shape in the epic adventure of “Faraway Downs,” set to captivate audiences. “Faraway Downs” will be available for streaming on Hulu in the United States, Star+ in Latin America, and Disney+ in all other regions starting November 26. The narrative revolves around Lady Sarah Ashley (portrayed by Nicole Kidman), an English aristocrat who embarks on a cross-continental odyssey to confront her errant husband and oversee the sale of an extraordinary asset—an expansive one-million-acre cattle ranch in the Australian Outback known as ‘Faraway Downs’. Following her husband’s demise, a ruthless Australian cattle tycoon, King Carney (played by Bryan Brown), schemes to seize her land. Reluctantly, she forges an alliance with a rugged cattle driver (depicted by Hugh Jackman) to safeguard her estate. This sweeping romantic adventure unfolds through the perspective of a young boy named Nullah (enacted by Brandon Walters), a biracial Indigenous Australian child ensnared in the government’s oppressive racial policy, remembered as the “Stolen Generations.” Together, this trio navigates four transformative years, fostering a romance between Lady Ashley and the Drover and grappling with the inexorable impact of World War II on Northern Australia.
