Movie Reviews

At The End of The Rainbow
SORE EYES | 03/12/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Life After Tomorrow is a documentary about what happens in life after your dreams come true. The film reunites cast members who played orphans in the Broadway production of Annie. Via interviews with high-profile "annies" like Sarah Jessica Parker, viewers get a glimpse of life inside the dream-nights at Studio 54 when you're ten, life on the road with tutors who got high, stage mothers who had affairs with stage fathers and subsequent abortions, and worst of all, growth spurts which predicated your removal from the show. As one cast member in the film remarks, "the younger ones are coming to take your place and you're 12."

This isn't a US Weekly type of documentary. There are no child star "smash-ups" here-no stories of "annies" robbing liquor marts for drug money because they weren't able to readjust to life after stardom. The tragedy here is subtle and understated. Many of these women admit to being forced off stage and continuing life with the nagging hope in their heart that they would get back to Broadway. Life happens to these actresses-they become financial planners, mothers and annoying stage mothers, but some of them are obviously stuck somewhere else-not in tomorrow, but yesterday-when they were singing and dancing in Annie. Some of them haven't self-actualized which is unpleasant to see in someone who is turning 40. Others have adjusted OK. It's interesting, but it's also a hard-knock life when you peak at 10."

"Saw this on cable in late 2007. Great documentary look at showbiz and its effects on children, rising child stars, and STAGE MOTHERS. There were some interesting stories about off-stage affairs between some of the parents who traveled with the children on tour.

I love showbiz behind-the-scenes peeks, and this one is a winner."
Two thumbs up!

"Who doesn't love Annie??? It is as American as apple pie. "Life After Tomorrow" takes you behind the curtain to witness the real celebrations and tribulations the young actresses from the musical often encountered. It is a heartfelt examination of both the sunny days as well as the stormy weather that these child stars faced. I loved this documentary and watched it twice within the first day of receiving it. Whether you're like me and still remember almost every word to every song from Annie or you just have an interest in the effects of show business, this is a must see!"

"If you grew up in the 70s and 80s and loved the musical Annie, this documentary is for you! You can catch up with the girls that you saw on Broadway and touring the country as Annie and the orphans and hear a lot of behind the scenes stories that will shock you and make you laugh.

This is also great for any parent who is considering introducing her child to the world of showbiz!"
