When Ellie and her friends return from an isolated weekend away, they find that their whole world has changed. Australia has been invaded and everyone (including their families) are now prisoners of war held in cages at the local country showgrounds. After the initial shock, the friends band together and decide to fight for a change at a free life. These kids are no city slickers and soon they are giving the enemy little bee stings.
I just saw this movie this afternoon and thoroughly enjoyed it. I loved the characters and Ellie made a wonderful lead character, strong but also vulnerable. The relationships developed sweetly and gave me a warm fuzzy feeling. Hubby wasn’t too keen on all the dialogue but when the explosions begun, he was interested again.
My favourite quote of the movie is when Ellie says “. . . the book is always better than the movie . . . ” – made me laugh out loud!
I recommend this movie to all!
