Happy Feet is probably the most expensive Australian movie ever, but not for naught as it won the best animated film award from the Oscars. The most recent and perhaps the most memorable Australia movies for us are Moulin Rouge, Happy Feet and Australia. All three movies star Nicole Kidman in them. In Moulin Rouge, she was the most sought-after courtesan courted by the aspiring playwright played by Ewan McGregor. In Happy Feet, she was the penguin mother of the dancing penguin Mumble (Elijah Wood) and wife to Memphis (Hugh Jackman). In Australia, Kidman partners again with Jackman in a gripping dramatized history of Australia.


Other popular Australia movies that we may have seen include: Gallipoli, Crocodile Dundee, Muriel’s Wedding and Babe. All of which earned worldwide acclaim and awards. And of course, who could forget the world record holder Mad Max for having the highest profit to cost ratio ever? It was the movie that launched Mel Gibson to the Hollywood arena.
