STAR CINEMA AND GOLDFIELDS LIBRARIES PRESENT: STAR CINEMA BOOK CLUB
On the last Tuesday of each month we will screen a film adaptation of a book which we encourage you to read before or after seeing the film.
Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery. Dir: Ray Lawrence. Country: Australia.
On a fishing trip to Lake Jindabyne, a group of men (Gabriel Byrne, John Howard, Stelios Yiakmis) make the morally questionable decision to delay reporting the discovery of a murdered woman’s body. Claire (Laura Linney), the wife of one of the men, tries to understand the reasoning behind such thoughtlessness. Based on Raymond Carver’s short story ‘So Much Water So Close to Home’, this is a beautifully shot, subtle and understated meditation on morality, mortality, and murder.
