This Rom-Com Tele-Port’s this baby boomer back to the beaches of Northern NSW, schools over & we are on a 2 week surfing safari (pun intended). The Naked Wanderer reminds me of that pre-mobile phone era, before diary, no job & dwindling savings as we chased waves in the day and nurtured relationships under the stars. Instead of camels we rode horses, snakes we dodged and instead of lost cars we had camper vans blow a ram rod in between towns. This movie is a very pleasant (teary at times, happy tears that is) walk down memory lane. Long live the road trip romance! Oh & Great to see a whole movie with NO CGI ! It’s heartwarming .
Saw The Naked Wanderer at Hoyts Eastland (Ringwood, Victoria) last night (7 September 2019) and thoroughly enjoyed it. It’s a fabulous showcase of Western Australia and quite humorous. A great cast with a plenty of newbies and demonstrates the goodwill of the typical Aussie with a broken heart finding love on his naked journey.. highly recommend for a great nights entertainment.
The Naked Wanderer is a surprise package. I wasn’t expecting much to be honest but it wasn’t long before I succumbed to its charm. I really enjoyed the chemistry between Jack and Valerie, the film’s love interests. While not rocket science, the script is sweet and endearing and, at times, very witty. There were a few belly laugh moments and lots of chuckles on the way. Loved seeing the Lancelin sand dunes and the Pilbara featured in stunning shots. I really liked this movie and was glad I spent my money on it. It was very worthwhile.
