Stuck with the unexpected burden of responsibility, James is forced to come to terms with what really matters in life as the final hours tick away. Written by Roadshow Films

Did You Know?


This movie was produced under a very limited budget of 2.5 million US dollars. 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 »


James' Mum: You know what pisses me off the most, James? I already did this. I already said goodbye to you a number of times - more than once. And you had to turn up for real.
James: Sorry, mum.
James' Mum: Don't be.

Great Movie
27 October 2014 | by wadersSee all my reviews

I have been downloading/renting movies for yrs and using these ratings to decide if I should invest in the bandwidth/Cost. Felt it was time to contribute as this movie was way above what I expected. I am a SCI Fi/End of the world/Zombie movie lover and this totally entertained and kept my attention beginning to end.

This move met all my expectations and I could not stop watching till the end. And was the reason for me to create the account and add the review.

I recommend it. And have a few tissues waiting... it sure jolted my heart in the end. I know... being a guy I am not supposed to cry :)

Go/rent... whatever.. it's worth it

Well done to all involved... great movie. 8/10
