Tim Win­ton al­most has a god- like sta­tus in Aus­tralia’s fic­tion world – the award­win­ning nov­el­ist is loved by aca­demics and read­ers alike. Hav­ing al­ready wowed at the Mel­bourne In­ter­na­tional Film Fes­ti­val, ABC is air­ing part of the screen adap­ta­tion of The Turn­ing, which con­sists of sep­a­rate chap­ters – each helmed by dif­fer­ent di­rec­tors – fol­low­ing the lives in a small coastal town. In a unique move, all the chap­ters will be avail­able on the net­work’s web­site. Rose Byrne ( pic­tured) won an AACTA award for best ac­tress, while other big names in­clud­ing Cate Blanchett and Richard Roxburgh lend their con­sid­er­able act­ing chops to this am­bi­tious project.
