Seventeen Australian directors each create a chapter of this hauntingly beautiful novel by Tim Winton.  The linking and overlapping stories explore the extraordinary turning points in ordinary people’s lives.  As characters face second thoughts and mid-life regret, relationships irretrievably alter, resolves are made or broken, and lives change direction forever.

 

The filmmakers include world renowned actors Cate Blanchett (together with emerging theatre director Simon Stone), David Wenham and Mia Wasikoswka; visual artist Shaun Gladwell – Venice Biennale 2007; Indigenous choreographer Stephen Page; Justin Kursel – Directors’ Fortnight 2011; award winning Robert Connolly, Claire McCarthy, Rhys Graham, Jonathan auf der Heide and Ian Meadows; AFI Award winner Ashlee Page; Academy Award nominee Anthony Lucas.
