- TOMORROW has been review by Jennie Kermode at Eye For Film and she has very nice things to say about the film, Daniel in particular:
"What makes the film stand out, however, is the acting, especially Daniel Rashid's sensitive portrayal of Clark, which will hopefully see him getting a lot more attention from casting directors. With the dialogue necessarily flat, the film hinges on what he shows us with his face and body. The mixture of hope, fear, disappointment and excitement that ebbs and flows throughout the film is something anyone who remembers their first feelings of love will relate to."You can read the rest of her review at <http://www.eyeforfilm.co.uk/review/tomorrow-2014-film-review-by-jennie-kermode>
