Centered on a 14-year-old boy caught up in a murder mystery involving a part-Aboriginal suspect, this outstanding adaptation of Craig Silvey’s novel of the same name should speak to both adult and teenage audiences. Set in 1969, in the fictitious town of Corrigan, Perkins does a wonderful job evoking the community with its small-town secrets, the struggling local cricket team and the long-established social hierarchy. These, and the subtext of racial prejudices, are woven seamlessly into the thriller style narrative. Jasper Jones is supported by great acting, especially the wonderful Toni Collette and the stunning cinematography helps bring to life a sense of place.
