Tim Winton's The Turning

3h 0m Drama 2013

“The results are uneven and occasionally unnerving, but throughout its three-hour running-time, The Turning is totally engrossing, often moving (Warwick Thornton’s opening chapter is wonderful) and full of surprises.” - Tom Ryan, Melbourne Review

Discover an extraordinary filmmaking collaboration in TIM WINTON’S THE TURNING. Eighteen talented Australian directors from diverse artistic disciplines each create a chapter of the hauntingly beautiful novel by multi award-winning author Tim Winton. The linking and overlapping stories explore the extraordinary turning points in ordinary people’s lives in a stunning portrait of a small coastal community. As characters face second thoughts and regret, relationships irretrievably alter, resolves are made or broken, and lives change direction forever.

With contributions from such unique voices as Robert Connolly (BALIBO), Warwick Thornton (SAMSON & DELILAH), Tony Ayres (HOME SONG STORIES), Justin Kurzel (SNOWTOWN) and Mia Wasikowska, among many more, and starring Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne, Hugo Weaving, Miranda Otto and so many other talented individuals, this watershed film reinterprets and re-imagines Winton’s work for the screen.

Producer Robert Connelly made a point of selecting directors from diverse career backgrounds. Actors Mia Wasikowska and David Wenham make their directorial debuts, alongside playwright Simon Stone, Dance choreographer Stephen Page and the circus arts director Yaron Lifschitz.
