IMAGINE A PLACE WHERE NOTHING IS IMPOSSIBLE.
Casey Newton (Britt Robertson) finds a pin that shows her a vision of a futuristic place called Tomorrowland that’s invisible to everyone else; soon she’s on the run with a mysterious girl (Raffey Cassidy)… Another Disney amusement park attraction gets its own movie, as in the case of Pirates of the Caribbean (2003). Elaborate, with a few spectacular scenes and a rousing score. The story is driven by a longing for a better world, but fails to make much of an impact in the film’s second half. Most rewarding aspect: the humorous and emotional relationship between Frank, Casey and Athena.
