“Jasper Jones” by Rachel Perkins (Australia, 2017)


Jasper Jones

Interesting representation of teenagers rejecting the crooked ways of the significant adults around them.
NOTICED (SPOILER): One mother betrays her husband. Another one destroys evidence to protect hers. In the end, it leaves two children betrayed by their mothers.
The musical score is too omnipresent.
