|The book that inspired the film The Tree|
Here's the first line from the first chapter of the book found at the film's website...
"It was simple for me: the saints were in heaven, and guardian angels had extendable wings like Batman, and my dad had died and gone to live in the tree in the back yard."
Below is Simone who's story is key to the book and the film.

|Charlotte Ginsbourg as Dawn|
|Film director Julie Bertucelli in the tree|
|The Boonah countryside|
The film is set in country not that far from Brisbane so the Moreton Bay Fig Tree and house featured in this film were quite familiar. These wonderful trees are a familiar sight around where I live.
I have only once before posted on a film here... so you can take it from me that the film was quite special!
