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 speaks to both adult and teenage audiences. Set in 1969 in the fictitious town of Corrigan, director Rachel Perkins does a wonderful job evoking the community with its small-town secrets, struggling local cricket team and long-established social hierarchy. These elements, 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. ~OY
