Trivia

Sara McMillan's character, Kate, asks Russell Crowe's character, Lachlan, if he's New Zealander. Lachlan says he's Australian. But Crowe is in fact New Zealander, born in Wellington. See more »

Goofs

Lachlan takes off twice in the Tiger Moth which he had landed in the fields. On both occasions the engine seems to start itself. The only way to start the Gypsy Major engine of a 1940s Tiger Moth is manually to swing the propeller. See more »

Quotes

Lachlan: Sweet dreams.
Lill: There's no time for dreams. We've almost run out of night.
Lachlan: There's nothing wrong with daydreams.

A reminder
21 June 2000 | by (The Vally, CA) – See all my reviews

This film takes you to another time when there was a different pace to everyday life. We get an idea how families had to deal with the war and how quickly we sent young men off to fight. A very touching look at the past and a reminder that casualties of war don't just happen on the front.

Luckily many of us have never had to go through what our great-grandparents, grandparents or parents went through during a war. This film, I think, is a small thank you. Peter Outerbridge looks amazingly like a young Peter O'Toole and Russell Crowe is absolutely charming and as Australian as he can be. It's definitely worth listening to him recite "High Flight" and makes me wonder what he might accomplish with Shakespeare.
