'DIRT MUSIC' TRAILER
GIVES GARRETT HEDLUND A VERY HOT BEARD INDEED
First trailer has been released for the big screen adaptation of acclaimed Australian novel DIRT MUSIC by Tim Winton, in which the stunning landscape of Western Australia is the backdrop for an impassioned tale of love
and grief. Stuck in a loveless relationship with legendary local fisherman Jim Buckridge (David Wenham), the despondent Georgie (Kelly Macdonald) becomes enamoured with Lu (Garrett Hedlund), a young poacher who is encroaching on her tyrannical partner's territory. A reticent loner with a tragic past who gave up his life as a musician, Lu is wary of letting Georgie in. But their fervent attraction gets the better of them, and secrets are uncovered that will change their lives. When Jim finds out about the affair, Lu flees into the punishing terrain with no intention of returning, and Georgie sets off on a chase to bring her lover back. Three tempestuous
characters, worn down by traumas, find themselves bound together and forced to face one another's inner conflicts in this blistering outback melodrama.

|Along with the novel, a "soundtrack" was produced, which included both bluegrass and classical music and was intended to embody the quote in the novel, "Anything you could play on a verandah. You know, without electricity. Dirt music."|
