You and a guest are invited to attend an exclusive screening of JASPER JONES hosted by Ruby Connection, at Dendy Cinemas Opera Quay, Sydney.
JASPER JONES is directed by the talented Rachel Perkins who is known for her work on Bran Nue Dae, Radiance, First Australians and Redfern Now. Rachel will be present at the networking hour for a Q&A with Ruby members and will introduce the film.
Adapted from Craig Silvey's bestselling Australian novel and featuring a stellar cast including Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller, Angourie Rice, Dan Wyllie and Aaron McGrath, JASPER JONES is the story of Charlie Bucktin, a bookish boy of 14 living in a small town in Western Australia.
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 and shows him something that will change his life forever, 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.
