The Weekend Australian - Review - - Out & About - David Strat­ton

Jasper Jones (M) Rachel Perkins’s adap­ta­tion of Craig Sil­vey’s well-re­garded book is a beau­ti­fully re­alised evo­ca­tion of life in a small West Aus­tralian tim­ber town in the sum­mer of 1969. The cen­tral char­ac­ter is Char­lie (Levi Miller), a 14-year-old who is forced to cope not only with pu­berty and his at­trac­tion to a girl his age (An­gourie Rice) but also with chal­lenges that in­volve racism, jeal­ousy and mur­der.
