Adapted from Craig Silvey’s bestselling Australian novel and featuring a stellar cast including Toni Collette, Hugo Weaving, Levi Miller, Angourie Rice, Dan Wyllie and Aaron McGrath, JASPER JONES is the story of Charlie Bucktin, a bookish boy of 14 living in a small town in Western Australia.
In the dead of night during the scorching summer of 1969, Charlie is startled when he is woken by local mixed-race outcast Jasper Jones outside his window. Jasper leads him deep into the forest and shows him something that will change his life forever, setting them both on a dangerous journey to solve a mystery that will consume the entire community.
In an isolated town where secrecy, gossip and tragedy overwhelm the landscape, Charlie faces family breakdown, finds his first love, and discovers what it means be truly courageous.

i want to go home,
but home is the mouth of a shark
home is the barrel of the gun
and no one would leave home
unless home chased you to the shore
unless home told you
to quicken your legs
leave your clothes behind
crawl through the desert
wade through the oceans
your survival is more important
no one leaves home until home is a sweaty voice in your ear
run away from me now
i don’t know what i’ve become
but i know that anywhere
is safer than here
Come along to Hills Circle of Friends’ final film fundraiser for 2016!
Fantastic Beasts And Where To Find Them
The year is 1926, and Newt Scamander (Eddie Redmayne) has just completed a global excursion to find and document an extraordinary array of magical creatures. Arriving in New York for a brief stopover, he might have come and gone without incident, were it not for a No-Maj (American for Muggle) named Jacob, a misplaced magical case, and the escape of some of Newt’s fantastic beasts, which could spell trouble for both the wizarding and No-Maj worlds.
WHERE: The Capri Theatre, Goodwood
WHEN: Saturday November 26th
TIME: Movie starts 6.30pm sharp
Purchase your tickets on the night from the Hills Circle of Friends volunteer table. Arrive a little early and collect some snacks from The Capri’s well stocked candy bar. Then settle back for “the adventures of writer Newt Scamander in New York’s secret community of witches and wizards seventy years before Harry Potter reads his book in school…”
All are Welcome to attend our Annual General Meeting:
DATE: Wednesday 2nd November 2016
ADDRESS: The Hut Community Centre, Old Railway Station, Euston Rd, Aldgate
GUEST SPEAKER: Peter Drew.
Peter visited families in the (now closed) Inverbrackie Detention Centre near Woodside SA, and encouraged them to draw their feelings and journeys from their homelands to Adelaide.
Peter is a poster-maker extraordinaire, and will tell us about his adventures putting up his large Afghan-themed posters in each State capital CBD, around towns and public areas all over Australia, as well a meeting with politicians and activists during his journeys.
Many of his posters can be found throughout Adelaide’s CBD and suburbs.
