Mystery drama which lacks focus
29 October 2018 | by shakercoolaSee all my reviews

An Australian drama; A story set in Western Australia in the late 1960s about a bookish 14-year-old, who changes irrevocably the night Jasper Jones shows him the dead body of Laura Wishart. At times engrossing and moving, it gives up on the main plotline and makes its subplots centre pieces. This destroys tension and we end up with straight melodrama.
