Hearts and Bones

A war photographer (Hugo Weaving) and a refugee (newcomer 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." (Sydney Film Festival)

The intuitive selection of the four leads, and their complex, perceptive playing of the material, is a credit to Lawrence's deft direction of both veteran and non-professional talent.

The untangling of each man's past lets the film explore ideas about trust and blinkered assumptions, and Lawrence proves himself a very able director of actors.
