Based on the first book of short stories by James Franco, the movie stars Franco as a football coach who takes a too-romantic interest in teenage babysitter Emma Roberts — in other intertwined stories, we meet troubled kids Teddy [Jack Kilmer] and Fred [Nat Wolff] — who drives into a wall on purpose in the film’s first scene.
An adaptation of Australia’s best-selling book of short stories. Ten stories interweave in their respective narratives, creating an intriguing and twisting central plot-line that often centres around the enigmatic members of the Lang family, each consumed by their shared pasts.
The Turning explores the impact of past on present, how the seemingly random incidents that change and shape us can never be escaped or let go of. All of the stories are bound together by recurring themes; the passing of time, regret, addiction and obsession.
