Check out the trailer for the film adaptation of Jane Harper's 'The Dry'

Three years on from Jane Harper's explosive debut novel The Dry, we've gotten our first glimpse at the film adaptation. 

Starring Eric Bana as Agent Aaron Falk, and directed by Robert Connoly (Balibo, Paper Planes, Deep State), the movie is hitting cinemas 1 January, 2021, after being delayed from its original release date of 27 August. 


In 2018 when the film was announced, Jane Harper tweeted that she was 'very exicted' about Eric Bana's role: 

Here's the film's synopsis, courtesy of Village Roadshow: 

'When Federal Agent Aaron Falk returns to his home town after an absence of over twenty years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life – a victim of the madness that has ravaged this community after more than a decade of drought. When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound – the death of 17- year-old Ellie Deacon. Falk begins to suspect these two crimes, separated by decades, are connected. As he struggles to prove not only Luke’s innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and and pent-up rage of a terrified community.'
