Latest Australian Movie Does Well The Box Office

The new teen motion picture Tomorrow When The War Began has done actually very well at the Australian box office in its 1st month of release. The motion picture is based on the first of numerous books in a series with the same title. They had been written years ago by writer John Marsden for your younger adult reading audience and have turned out to become part of the English curriculum in most high schools in Australia. Which is what contributed to the book being so well liked, as teens that had to read it at school fell in love with the book and couldn’t wait for your motion picture to be released.

This film was produced in Australia with the majority of the young actors from the movie being young Australian actors who have gained reputation in Australian soapies like Home and Away and Neighbours, to mention a few.

It has had mixed reactions from the public. Most have mentioned how they really enjoyed the film and how Stuart Beattie, the screen writer who adapted the book for the film, has kept to the basic plot of the book. Other people have said they didn’t like the minor alterations he produced to the original tale along with the extra parts he incorporated into the film.

Having seen the film myself, I can say that the movie does stick mainly to the original tale within the book, and also the slight modifications that had been created needed to be, in order to tell the tale within the 104 minutes the film goes for.

The motion picture is the account of seven teenagers who go camping for the weekend through the annual Commemorative Day celebrations which are on in their rural township of Wirrawee. They return to see their town has been invaded by an unknown enemy force with their families being held captive at the showground. The movie then goes on to show how the teens must band together to fight guerrilla style against this enemy force in order to try to save their town and their families.

The film does a very good job of showing how the teens react and cope when thrown into a terrifying predicament and how they deal together with the tension and strain that a predicament like this creates. When they’re pushed to their limits they become quite enterprising from the way they attempt to impede the enemy forces’ stronghold on their city.

This is really a coming of age film as the teenagers have to grow up very fast in order to survive the conditions they now find themselves in. The film has been quite well received by Australian audiences as evidenced by its enormous box office earnings and is positive to become one of the most popular films to come out of Australia.
