"No Worries" was filmed in my old hometown of Gilgandra NSW (technically on the sheepfarms in the shire, as well as nearby Dubbo) and there were even a couple of girls in my class at Gilgandra Public School (as well as a friend's old house that Matilda's family lived in) who featured as extras in the film.

Having said that, I'm aware that some people might expect me to feel that the film was enjoyable. And for city folks, maybe it was. But as a country girl, I can tell ya that things were depressing enough having to struggle to make a living through the on-going drought without having had it made into a film.

(Actually, it's not like things have improved, not even now I'm living in the "city".)

We were forced to travel to Dubbo to see the film, which turned out to be the most tortuous experience of my life! It was nasty. The word for it is "UGH".

My advice to you is: don't watch it! (Unless of course, you're an insomniac. Then feel free - it'll solve all your troubles! ^_^)

But anyway, that's all I can advise. Besides all my already mentioned complaints, the fact that an 11-yr-old country girl would run away TO THE OCEAN to get home is just total...rubbish.

(Uh, that is what happened, yes? It's been so long since I've subjected myself to the horrendous experience of it all!)
