The Police Officer is using a Beretta M92 handgun, these handguns have never been issued to any branches of Australia's State Police forces. The only semi automatic handguns they carry are Glocks, and Smith and Wesson M&P's. Some NSW branches are still carrying S&W revolvers. See more »
The film gives the impression that the northern suburb of Malaga (the location of the ice rink) and the southern suburb of Willeton (the location of the library) are relatively close together. These suburbs are approximately 25 kilometers apart, and traveling between the two in the fastest way would require driving through the (burning)Perth city center. See more »

This one took me by surprise. If you appreciate fine cinema, you ought to love this one, too. The writing, casting, directing, production and soundtrack are all excellent. Young actress Angourie Rice, as other reviewers have noted, offers an especially memorable and deeply emotional performance. Nathan Phillips, Jessica De Gouw, Sarah Snook, Lynette Curran, Daniel Henshall and supporting cast are also excellent and convincing. This is a great film; full of drama, emotion, suspense and beauty ... please don't miss it. p.s. My other favorite films from Oceania are 'Bliss' (1985, Australia) and 'The Quiet Earth' (1985, New Zealand).
