Tracks-Poster-sliceIt’s not always the destination but how you get there, and John Curran’s Tracks, released today in the UK,  proves exactly that. Starring Mia Wasikowska as the socially inept and desperately stubborn Robyn, Tracks follows this young woman as she treks 1,700 miles across West Australia.

To celebrate the film’s release we took a look at some of the best journeys in cinema and the characters who took them.

Stand By MeStand By Me

1986, dir. Rob Reiner

A perfect film about the tribulations of growing up, Stand By Me ends with four boys visiting a missing body, but the obstacles that they endure on their trip, from raging trains to high school bullies are what shape its characters. So believable are the scrappy and defiant nature of our four protagonists that its difficult not to side with them, even if the end of their journey doesn’t signify a great victory.
