“The Turning” opens in the U.K. on February 6th

Based on the ten short stories by Tim Winton, this multi-threaded film starts with the relationship between a young woman living in a trailer park with her abusive husband, and spreads out from there. Cate Blanchett is Gail Lang in the segment “Reunion“.

The official synopsis:

Ten stories interweave in their respective narratives, creating an intriguing and twisting central plot-line that often centres around the enigmatic members of the Lang family, each consumed by their shared pasts.

The Turning explores the impact of past on present, how the seemingly random incidents that change and shape us can never be escaped or let go of. All of the stories are bound together by recurring themes; the passing of time, regret, addiction and obsession.

Watch the trailer below!

The Turning premiered at the Melbourne International Film Festival on August 3rd, 2013 and was screened in the Berlinale Special Galas section of the 64th Berlin International Film Festival. Main Street Films has the U.S. rights, but not much has been heard about a release date.

The Turning Teaser Trailer

The trailer for Tim Winton’s best-selling novel ‘The Turning’ has been released ahead of its World Premiere at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

The much-anticipated film adaptation features some of Australia’s top talent including Cate Blanchett, Rose Byrne and Hugo Weaving.

The film is a collaborative effort that consists of 17 chapters, which each features a different director and stellar cast.

“We came upon this idea of extending a personal invitation to seventeen great creative minds to interpret one chapter each and asking them if any of the stories particularly spoke to them, affected or resonated with them,” Producer Robert Connolly said.

The film will release as a unique cinematic event across Australia later this year.
