My Overview: What happens when an English aristocrat, Lady Sarah Ashley, takes over her former husband's ranch and runs into trouble? Set in the era of just before WWII, where a woman struggles to take care of her husband's ranch. This movie is a little bit of Titanic with a little bit of Pearl Harbor and wrapped all up in a western setting. Lady Sarah Asley is a very independent woman that doesn't want to seek the help that she will need in order to keep the ranch successfully running & still turning a profit! Her motto is "I'm a capable as any man". Then she meets Drover, a stockman  (Hugh Jackman) and sees a way that she might be able to keep the ranch! Will he help her or will his motto "no man can hire me, so no man can fire me", be the very thing that stops him from taking the job on?

 

My Thoughts and Comments: The first thing that I want to say about this movie is that you will never be able listen to the song "Somewhere over the rainbow" again without thinking about this movie! I've been wanting to see this movie for a while and we finally saw it on Netflix last night! You know you get tired of movies that are all special effects and no plot or story line. However this movie had a great story line and all I can say is that the ending will blow you away!
