A promising line-up of Australian movies poised to delight cinemagoers

Jasper Jones on another list of Australian films to watch out for in 2016

There are high expectations for this adaptation of a much-loved Australian book, Craig Silvey’s bestselling 2009 novel, in which he explicitly (and successfully) references To Kill A Mockingbird. The central character, Charlie, is played by 13-year-old Levi Miller, who made a strong impression as the young Peter Pan in the otherwise disappointing blockbuster Pan. Toni Collette and Dan Wyllie are Charlie’s parents, and the film also features young actress Angourie Rice (who will make her Hollywood debut this year in The Nice Guys). Rachel Perkins (Bran Nue Dae) directs.
