Movie Info

Roberta Hanley made her feature directorial debut with this British drama based on the play by Jeff Noon about a civil war in the near future. The war zone is on a barren island where farmers toil in a manner recalling the days of the Industrial Revolution. Young single women are recruited and sent off to distant outposts, where sniper fire and explosions indicate the presence of the unseen enemy. This was filmed on the Isle of Man, with documentary-style camerawork plus input from military advisor Chris Byrne. Shown in competition at the 1998 AFI Film Festival. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Brand New World

Massive load of dog shit . Not an action movie , to abstract to make any sense , and NOT a starring role for Guy Pearce . The cover art for the DVD makes it look like a action film and it's just talking and fucking ! The British accents are beyond thick to the point where you can't understand them . You can't develop any connection or fondness with any of the characters . The pacing is all wrong . It's just dog shit !

Failing as entertainment, art and drama, this film did nothing for me nor can I imagine who the audience for this film would be.
