Jasper Jones (2016)
Critic Reviews for Jasper Jones
Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey's novel will appeal strongly to teenage and adult audiences.
There's always room for a smart, thoughtful and engaging take on a well-worn premise, and Bran Nue Dae director Rachel Perkins delivers just that.
Well scripted, shot, and acted, there's very little not to recommend it: it streamlines a story without sacrificing complexity, and it is both entertaining and thoughtful while it's at it. It's enough to give you faith in the industry.
There's a heart to this film that resonates strongly. 14-year-old Levi Miller is terrific as the shy, awkward Charlie who is trying to come to grips with his quickly changing world.
