She’s stunning, she’s grateful she is talented. We all have seen Mia Wasikowska’s acting in television dramas and movies. Her acting is mature, and her expressions remarkable, even though she is just 31 years old.
Born on October 25, 1989, Mia always had an artistic flair for whatever she did. Mia is an Australian actress but recognized worldwide due to her exceptional performance in movies like Alice in Wonderland, The Kids Are All Right, and Crimson Peak.
Mia wanted to be a professional ballerina since childhood and started training at the age of 9. An injury made her leave her dream and pursue acting.
Blueback, a Tale of the Ocean
Written by Robert Connolly, Blueback is a heart-touching story about a girl and her friend. The friend is a magnificent wild blue groper, which the girl befriends in childhood while scuba diving.
It is a family movie filled with emotional and sentimental scenes. It is a story that emphasizes an ecologically important issue: saving the planet and saving the ocean life is a cause that holds great urgency.
This movie is surely a positive step towards that goal through its adaptation of the short novel by the author Tim Winton.
Mia Wasikowska as Abby
Mia Wasikowska plays the role of Abby, a lead in the movie Blueback. Her character is compassionate and considerate towards everyone. She finds love at the most unpredictable places, and the ocean is one of them.
Abby fights for creatures who can’t fight for themselves. She is strong-willed and determined to save her friend with the help of her mom.
The story revolves around the ocean and a large fish, so a good part of the movie is shot underwater. The director, Robert Connolly, had to request special camera equipment and cameramen that were comfortable shooting underwater. Since Wasikowska also had to shoot many scenes underwater, she actually had to take diving classes.
According to the talented actress, acting underwater is not easy since your expressions are not very evident. But knowing the fine actor that she is, we have no doubt she will perform exceptionally.
A cause close to the heart
The world is already going through some hard times. The earth is not in its best shape right now and sadly we have played quite a big role in it. Saving the planet and ocean is a cause that is close to Wasikowska’s heart. Protecting animals and all the creatures is important and this is the reason this movie is important for her.
The struggle of Abby in the movie is a somewhat accurate portrayal of what Mia Wasikowska feels in real life. She is compassionate towards animals, since always.
A family movie
You can see a mix of emotions in Blueback and a story that takes you on a journey of love and compassion. Mia Wasikowska loves to do movies that you can watch with your whole family. It shows a fast range of emotions and shows a girl ready to do everything and anything for his marine friend.
People who love animals and feel their pain will fall in love with this movie that is for sure. It shows a story of a girl, growing up to be a woman and how her life changes when she falls in love with a majestic groper.
Set in Australia
Another reason for Mia Wasikowska for love in this movie is it takes her back to her birthplace. She was born in Canberra, Australia, and this movie is based around the western coastal area of Australia as well. Being an Australian, she always had a special place in her heart for projects that take her back to where she started.
Something to talk about
This movie revolves around the important issue of saving the planet and ocean life, it is termed as an extremely important movie for the Australian film industry and expected to make ripples across the globe. Ecological activism can look strange, but when you start feeling for all the living beings, you find so much courage in your heart that it is just astounding.
Wasikowska has also started actively making statements about these issues and condoning any act of brutality that might hurt the creatures from the ocean.
Since the beginning of her career in 2004 in an Australian television series All Saints, Mia Wasikowska has come a long way. Her acting is polished, and her expressions are to the point. People who love her should mark their calendars for the release date of Blueback. This movie will make you ponder upon things far more important than the petty issues on which we daily dwell unnecessarily.
