Scorsese said, “I’m honoured to join Martha in her directorial debut. Through her vision, the great cast, and dedicated team, this story will resonate for years to come."
Pinson said, “Tomorrow is a great script. The dialogue is brilliant and believable; the reversals and surprises are well placed and powerful. The characters and situations are vividly drawn. It explores the difficulty of moving on from loses and injuries, to forge a life, to find sustaining work, and experience love. This is an acute challenge for a person in their mid to late 20s, which has not been extensively explored. For an injured veteran or someone who is HIV positive it is colossal.”
