As star, Caitlin Stasey, mentions in her interview with Kryztoff, say ‘an Australian adventure film’ and cynicism kicks in – ‘this will be nothing like an American big budget flick.’ Well, Tomorrow, When the War Began may be the start of all that changing for it is big, lavish, well acted and genuinely exciting with plenty of believable action.
When 17 year old Ellie (Caitlin Stasey) and six of her mates decide to take off for a week of camping at Hell, a beautiful but isolated spot in the mountains, they discover not only a lot about themselves but also their town, Wirrawee, has been taken over by enemy forces when they return. From there, each of the group must face up to their reality and take on the enemy with guerrilla warfare.
Based on the book by popular Australian children’s author, John Marsden, and debut directed by Stuart Beattie (screenplay writer for The Pirates of the Caribbean etc), Tomorrow packs a punch. Stasey does an excellent job as the heroine but others in her pack also shine such as Rachel Hurd-Wood (as Corrie), Deniz Akdeniz (as Homer) and Chris Pang (as Lee). Others like Lincoln Lewis perhaps found the leap to big screen from their small screen roots more of a challenge.
