Mini Review - Jasper Jones

Jasper Jones (out Mar 2) is set in 1969 and is an Aussie coming-of-age tale. 14-year-old Levi Miller is terrific as the shy, awkward teenager who is trying to come to grips with his quickly changing world. Not afraid to challenge audiences with its content, this is a worthy adaptation of Craig Silvey's award-winning novel. Grade: B+.
