The Turning is a 2013 Australian anthology film based on a collection of short stories by Tim Winton. In this portrait of a small coastal community, characters face second thoughts and regret, relationships irretrievably alter, resolves are made or broken, and lives change direction forever.

Thoroughly engaging omnibus project from 18 of Australia's more interesting directors and based on Tim Winton's novel of the same name. A poetic, experimental and visual feast that for once deals with Australia in a sincere manner without resorting to mockery. Some parts are clearly stronger than others but on the whole it's cohesive and the rotating characters add a fresh layer of depth for later reflection. 4 stars
