Eduard Geyl plays the central character Rowan in the Sydney Film School production of Brittle Bones. It is a coming of age story set in the mid 1960’s. It is about four Australian boys Rowan, Jimmy, Ky and Connor who are surrounded by images of war and destruction. Faced with the ideals of masculinity and courage, Rowan especially finds it hard to cope. The boys must overcome their struggles in order to find themselves and make sense of the world around them. It is set in the Australian bush which has a haunted atmosphere. The boys escape from school on a hot summers day, going swimming in a watering hole and mucking about. Tensions rise as Rowan is being sent to a private school in the city, Jimmy especially feels abandoned by Rowan. Congratulations to Eduard for a very touching sensitive performance!
Enjoy Brittle Bones!
