Thanks to Transmission we have 5 copies of THE WEIGHT OF ELEPHANTS to giveaway (5 DVDs).
Official Synopsis (courtesy of THR):
Inspired by Australian writer Sonya Hartnett’s novel Of a Boy, the story centers on introspective 11-year-old Adrian (Demos Murphy), placed by his unfit mother in the care of his Gran (Catherine Wilkin), a no-nonsense warmth-free zone. Bullied as an outsider at school, Adrian feels closest to his Uncle Rory (Matthew Sunderland), a manic-depressive whose volatile mood swings frequently plunge him into despair.
Fascinated by news reports of three abducted children, Adrian also is strangely drawn to the ostracized foster kids at school. But he needs little help in being socially exiled on the playground. When a family moves into a shabby house on his street, with three young children left unsupervised to run wild, he begins to fantasize that they might be the missing kids.
As his sole friendship with classmate Clinton (Finn Holden) crumbles, Adrian cautiously gets to know his new neighbors. Six-year-old Joely (Hannah Jones) is open and trusting, but her tough-acting older sister Nicole (Angelina Cottrell) is wary. However, as Adrian reveals his own unhappiness and gains insights into their family situation, he finds common ground with the preteen girl.
