The film's bleakly inevitable ending packs a wallop and its hauntingly desolate images linger long after the story is told.

The New York Times

A stark moral fable told in the language of the sort of western that Hollywood has stopped making, this Australian film could be viewed as a companion piece to Rabbit-Proof Fence.

Los Angeles Times

Los Angeles Times

A high-minded film that at times verges on didacticism, The Tracker is redeemed by its adherence to a simple yet distinctive approach to storytelling and its uniformly strong acting.
