The New York Film Festival is underway and two of the biggest commercial titles of the fall are in its lineup. (They also happen to be opening this week). Neither of these lives up to the hype, though I recognize that will be a distinctly minority opinion.

In Tracks, Mia Wasikowska plays a young woman who decides to do what no woman has done before her: She will walk halfway across Australia, beginning in desolate Alice Springs and traversing 1,700 miles of desert and wasteland, walking to the ocean on the island continent's west coast.
At 50, the Oscar-winning actress is funny, beautiful, hot, talented and has Hollywood eating out of the palm of her hand. High50's Alexa Baracaia looks at why everyone loves America's sweetheart, Sandra Bullock.
