Cate Blanchett, Mia Wasikowska & More Direct in 'The Turning' Trailer
Though Cloud Atlas may not have made the splash many had hoped, Hugo Weaving hasn't been turned off from ambitious, generation-spanning projects with interconnected stories. The Turning is getting ready to premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival next month, and the omnibus marks the directing debut of on screen talents like Cate Blanchett (Hanna), Mia Wasikowska (Alice in Wonderland) and David Wenham (300) along with 14 other filmmakers as they adapt short stories from Tim Winton's short story collection of the same name. The three also star in the collection of stories along with Rose Byrne, Miranda Otto, Richard Roxburgh and more. The teaser makes the Australian film look just gorgeous.
Warwick Thornton, Jub Clerc, Robert Connolly, Anthony Lucas, Rhys Graham, Ashlee Page, Tony Ayres, Claire McCarthy, Stephen Page, Shaun Gladwell, Mia Wasikowska, Simon Stone, David Wenham, Jonathan auf der Heide, Justin Kurzel, Yaron Lifschitz, Ian Meadows and Marieka Walsh all direct segments in The Turning, an adaptation of Tim Winton's short story collection of the same name. Across three decades and 17 interconnected stories lies a singular portrait of a remarkable community – one defined by small triumphs, fading dreams and the inimitable Australian coast, by turns both beautiful and dangerous. The film premieres at the Melbourne International Film Festival next month, but has no release date yet. Well?
