Hearts and Bones

1h 47m Drama 2019

A war photographer and a South Sudanese refugee discover a photograph that threatens to destroy them both.

Dan (Hugo Weaving) has just returned home from photographing conflicts overseas to prepare for his latest exhibition when Sebastian (first-time actor Andrew Luri), a South Sudanese refugee, appears at his door with a request. Sebastian implores Dan to not exhibit any photographs of the massacre in his village, taken 15 years earlier. An unlikely friendship between the two men emerges, but as they sift through the photographer’s archive, revelations arise, and both men begin to question their past and search for their salvation.

“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.” - Variety
