The Incredible Journey of Mary Bryant)" is an outstanding drama based on a true story between Mary and Will Bryant. Basically, Mary Bryant is remembering her relationship with Will, and how everything leads up to his death. In the film, Mary is a convicted felon (she steals food and a bonnett), and is forced to travel on a ship to be a laborer in a new colony (now Australia). She meets Will on the ship, who is also a convict (he did some smuggling). From the start, Will and Mary have a strong connection. Finally, after much hardship, they reach the colony. There, they are married. Lieutenant Clark, the villain of the story, has always obsessively wanted Mary for his own. So, in order to plan escape from the hardship of the colony, Mary chooses to sleep with him in order to get Will the key and they escape with some other convicts. They go on a turbulent journey for about two months, which almost kills them all. But they reach Timor, a Dutch colony and for a short while find happiness while they wait for ships which will bring them back to England. Unfortunately, Clark discovers them, and out of jealousy kills Will. Mary returns to England, but her two children with Will die along the way as well. She is given a pardon, and she returns to her home country where she thinks about how she has lost Will and her two children. Well anyway, if you haven't seen it, you should watch it. It's a great film!!!
