Dir. Rachel Perkins. Australia. 2017, 101 mins. DCP. With Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Angourie Rice. In the dead of night during the scorching summer of 1969, Charlie is startled when he is woken by local mixed-race outcast Jasper Jones outside his window. Jasper leads him deep into the forest, setting them both on a dangerous journey to solve a mystery that will consume the entire community. In an isolated town where secrecy, gossip, and tragedy overwhelm the landscape, Charlie faces family breakdown, finds his first love, and discovers what it means be truly courageous. “Tackling themes of prejudice, class, justice, and death through the inquiring eyes of a teenager who dreams of being a writer, Jasper Jones also invokes the spirit of films such as Stand by Me, in which youngsters take very adult matters into their own hands.” (Variety).
