Jasper Jones

Drama Thriller


Summertime in small-town Australia in the late 1960s and teenaged Charlie Bucktin is woken by the urging of another boy, Jasper Jones, who has made a shocking discovery and needs help.

Three cheers for "Jasper Jones" the movie for faithfully telling the story related to the source material. The portrayal on the screen is exactly like the pictures created in your head while reading the book, right down to the all-important louvred bedroom window. Each character fills their role perfectly, as if they've just stepped off the page. The setting and era are meticulously depicted, allowing us to slip into their world. Drop through the window.
