Cate Blanchett, Mia Wasikowska, and David Wenham are set to make their directing debut alongside 14 other directors in the adaptation of Tim Winton's collection of short stories, The Turning.  The three actors will be joined by directors Benedict Andrews, Jonathan auf der Heide, Tony Ayres, Shaun Gladwell, Rhys Graham, Justin Kurzel Ian Meadows, Yaron Lifschitz, Claire McCarthy, Ashlee Page and Stephen Page.  Each of the 17 directors will handle a separate chapter of the book.  Per THR, "The linking and overlapping stories, while self contained, explore the extraordinary turning points in seemingly disparate but connected people’s lives."  I hope the film's theme isn't "We are all connected," because it's meaningless when done in a fiction.  Characters can be connected by a writer, but connections between real people usually illicit nothing more than a, "Huh.  Small world," and then they move on with the rest of their day.
