Trivia

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 »

Goofs

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 »

Great film - Nathan Phillips and Angourie Rice are excellent
4 August 2014 | by See all my reviews

Great film - tense, edgy, but human. Nathan Phillips and Angourie Rice are excellent - especially Angourie Rice - extraordinary acting for an 11 year old! The other two stand-outs are Sarah Snook, and the cameo by Lynnette Curran. In fact, the female casting is what makes the film so memorable - in other hands an end-of-days scenario like this could have been a parade of clichés for the young adult male market, but director Zac Hilditch draws us into a story that is bleak, yet sensitive and gripping without being addled by senseless action and effects. The cinematography and editing are also responsible for the film's great presence - beautifully shot by Bonnie Elliott and edited by Nick Meyers.
