Film Movement has acquired the US rights to JASPER JONES, an Australian drama film from director Rachel Perkins.

Based on Craig Silvey’s novel, the film stars Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller, Angourie Rice, Dan Wyllie and Aaron McGrath and follows Charlie Bucktin, a bookish boy of 14 who lives in a small town in Western Australia. One night during the scorching summer of 1969, Charlie is awoken by local-part Aboriginal outcast Jasper Jones, who leads him deep into the forest and shows him something that will change his life forever, setting them both on a dangerous journey to solve a mystery that will consume the entire community.

Vincent Sheehan of Porchlight Films produces with Bunya Productions’ David Jowsey.

Jasper Jones will be released this winter.
