Jasper Jones reveals first full trailer

It’s one of the most hotly anticipated Australian films of 2017, and now Jasper Jones has released its first trailer. Based on Craig Silvey’s beloved novel, the film version is directed by Rachel Perkins and features Toni Collette and Hugo Weaving.

Speaking to Daily Review this month, Perkins said: “I read the book very quickly, because it’s such a page turner, but it’s also got something to say about the country and the way that things sometimes don’t change. It was a text that really resonated with me — it was beautifully written, and I thought the murder mystery was such a great device to talk about these coming of age stories, and the realisation that things aren’t necessarily right and justice sometimes doesn’t prevail.”
