Two of Matt’s films – Jasper Jones and Hacksaw Ridge are on the list
From director, Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Dae), and screenwriter, Shaun Grant (Snowtown), comes the story of a rebellious Aboriginal boy and his friend Charlie, who after bearing witness to a terrible crime, must navigate the dense forests and unsuspecting denizens of Corrigan to solve a dark mystery. Released in late 2016.
Australia’s favourite chronically angry but technically astute bastard son, Mel Gibson, is back behind the lens with this WW2 tale about the first Conscientious Objector in American history to be awarded The Congressional Medal Of Honour. The film features a brilliant cast including Andrew Garfield and Vince Vaughn, plus locals, Sam Worthington, Luke Bracey, Hugo Weaving, Rachel Griffiths, Richard Roxburgh, Matt Nable and Teresa Palmer, making it one to watch out for in 2016. Released in late 2016.
