Over the past few years it seems that we’ve seen more and more omnibus films, from arty travelogues (“Paris, je t’aime”) to horror (“The ABCs of Death”). What sets “The Turning” apart, however, is that it’s an adaptation of the Tim Winton novel of the same name. While we’ve already seen a teaser for the film, and now a full length trailer has arrived for the effort.

A largely Australian endeavor, the film contains entries from seventeen different directors — Mia Wasikowska, Justin Kurzel, David Wenham, Benedict Andrews, Jonathan auf der Heide, Tony Ayres, Shaun Gladwell, Rhys Graham, Ian Meadows, Yaron Lifschitz, Claire McCarthy, Ashlee Page, Stephen Page and more. And as for the cast, a batch of big names have been rounded — Cate Blanchett, Hugo Weaving, Rose Byrne and Miranda Otto — along with a number of smaller players as well.

The multi-threaded film starts with the relationship between a young woman and her abusive husband, living in a trailer park and spreads out from there. The film hits screens in Australia next month on September 27th. No North American release date yet.

    It's such an incredible film and a genuine cinematic accomplishment. Hopefully it gets overseas distribution soon. It had a record-breaking 5 sold out sessions at the Melbourne International Film Festival.

    I dont think it would happen in US neither, this film is made for europe and maybe some latin-american countries . US is for another kind of movies.

    Unfortunately this probably won't happen, at least in the US because it's such a unique cinematic undertaking and Americans don't have the attention span for something like this.
