Storyline

In Ben Lawrence's beautifully acted debut feature, a war photographer Hugo Weaving and a refugee Andrew Luri discover a photograph that threatens to destroy them both. Daniel Fisher Weaving returns home, and despite his partner's protests, prepares for his next dangerous overseas assignment. At the same time, he is preparing for an upcoming retrospective exhibition of his work from the world's war zones. South Sudanese refugee, Sebastian Aman Luri has built a life in Australia, living happily with his wife and young child. When he learns that Daniel's exhibition may display photographs of a massacre in Sebastian's village 15 years earlier, he finds Daniel and appeals to him to exclude those photographs. An unlikely friendship develops between the two men, but it is severely tested when Daniel makes a shocking discovery. Hearts and Bones centres around the relationship of these two men, from very different backgrounds, who bond over their shared trauma. Andrew Luri, who has never acted...

I will give this one a ten
6 June 2020 | by eyeintreesSee all my reviews

There have been some Australian movie gems that have been important and very watchable and this is one of them. Excellent acting, a very good, realistic script, a story that should be told. I'm not sure if in real life the ending would be quite so happy but I'm glad this one was as it felt right for this film. A must watch for any serious movie goer who appreciates reality and the human journey, friendships that go beyond and for a change, relationships that are open about fragility and vulnerability without a host of ugly games. A very good film.
