  • Tomorrowland

    Tomorrowland (2015)

    Rated PG, 129 min. Directed by Brad Bird. Starring George Clooney, Hugh Laurie, Britt Robertson, Raffey Cassidy, Tim McGraw, Kathryn Hahn, Keegan-Michael Key, Thomas Robinson and Pierce Gagnon.

    There’s much to applaud and much to knock in this Disney action adventure. What Brad Bird's Tomorrowland does well, it does very well; what it doesn’t adds to the sense of a jumbled story and unremitting manifesto of hope aimed at young and old alike. Britt Robertson and Raffey Cassidy are terrific as the story’s primary protagonists: Casey Newton (Robertson), a girl in her late teens, and adolescent robot Athena (Cassidy), a mysterious emissary from the titular Tomorrowland. That these two manage to steal the limelight from George Clooney’s grizzled Frank Walker and Hugh Laurie's misguided baddie is no small accomplishment. Tomorrowland breaks the mold to become something quite original and complex, encouraging viewers to dream and imagine without making these suggestions explicit. The film leaves nothing to chance, however, and as a result, seems more like a calculation than a flight of fancy. Still, many of its calculations add up. Read a full review of Tomorrowland.
