Synopsis:
Eighteen Australian directors each create a chapter of the hauntingly beautiful novel by multi award-winning author Tim Winton. The linking and overlapping stories explore the extraordinary turning points in ordinary people's lives in a stunning portrait of a small coastal community. As characters face second thoughts and regret, relationships irretrievably alter, resolves are made or broken, and lives change direction forever. This watershed film reinterprets and re-imagines the work for the screen.

Could not finish it - The Turning review by MD

Spoiler Alert
15/11/2016

Starts promisingly, but goes nowhere. It seems to be just a collection of fragments of stories. If it ever cames together, I did not find out. Gave up 3/4 of the way through. Too boring.
