Aussie Stuart Beattie (pictured above) has established himself as a notable film director and screenwriter. Over the last 15-years he has accumulated many impressive credits for screenwriting, which includes: Pirates of the Caribbean: The Curse of the Black Pearl, Collateral, Australia, G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra, and Tomorrow, When the War Began, which he also directed. Beattie delivered a polished and exciting adaptation of John Marsden's novel Tomorrow, When the War Began. The excellent shot selection and cinematography captured so much beauty of the Australian landscape, and the performance of the entire cast delivered a strong and authentic screen presence. It was also pleasing that the Australian persona was accurately conveyed with local terms and slang as part of the film dialogue. The action and adventure narrative is presented with dazzling colour and quality special effects. It is fantastic that a world renowned Australian novel has made it to the screen, and I commend Beattie for supporting Australian Literature and the Australian Film Industry with this great movie.
