Nomination Detail

Adapted from Craig Silvey’s bestselling Australian novel of the same name, Jasper Jones is the story of Charlie Bucktin, a bookish 14-year-old boy 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 countryside and shows him something that will change their lives 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 courage truly means.
