Synopsis (from VideoHound's Golden Movie Retriever 2001): A group of survivors attempt to live normal lives in post-apocalyptic Australia, waiting for the inevitable arrival of killer radiation. Astaire is strong in his dramatic role. Though scientifically implausible, still a good anti-war vehicle. Based on the best-selling novel by Nevil Shute. (3½ out of 4)
I haven't seen this movie yet. I have it on DVD, but I hear it's *really* depressing, so I'm saving it. Still, the consensus seems to be that Fred is excellent in this movie.
