We’ve got our hands on the first official trailer of Jasper Jones, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by Rachel Perkins from a script by Shaun Grant based on the 2009 novel of the same name by Craig Silvey and starring Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller, Angourie Rice, Dan Wyllie and Aaron McGrath:
A knock at the window, their lives changed forever.
Based on the iconic Australian novel.
“Adapted from Craig Silvey’s bestselling Australian novel, JASPER JONES is the story of Charlie Bucktin, a bookish boy of 14 living in a small town in Western Australia.
In the dead of night during the scorching summer of 1969, Charlie is startled when he is woken by local mixed-race outcast Jasper Jones outside his window. Jasper leads him deep into the forest and shows him something that will change his life forever, setting them both on a dangerous journey to solve a mystery that will consume the entire community.
In an isolated town where secrecy, gossip and tragedy overwhelm the landscape, Charlie faces family breakdown, finds his first love, and discovers what it means be truly courageous.”
There’s also a film poster, take a look below:
I haven’t read the novel the film is based on, but the trailer did catch my attention, plus it’s starring Red Skull, er I mean Hugo Weaving, so I will definitely give it a try. And you?
The release date of the movie Jasper Jones is set to March 2, 2017.
