Mini-Reviews: Carlotta and Edge of Tomorrow

Carlotta

Performances are top notch in this telemovie that depicts the life of Richard Byron who would later be known to the world as Carlotta.

Jessica Marais and Eamon Farren’s performances in particular are outstanding to watch. I’ve been fortunate enough to see Eamon Farren on stage a couple of times and am glad that a bigger audience gets to see his talent present in this telemovie.

On top of the telemovie, the DVD contains a number of extras, which are definitely worth watching.

Airs on ABC1 on 19 June 2014 at 8:30pm and will be released on DVD on 2 July 2014.
