Film Adaptation of Romulus, My Father

Eric Bana, who has appeared in such films as Blackhawk Down, Munich and Chopper, is to feature in a film adaptation of an Australian memoir.

"ROMULUS, MY FATHER is based on Raimond Gaita's critically acclaimed memoir. It tells the story of Romulus, his beautiful wife, Christina, and their struggle in the face of great adversity to bring up their son, Raimond. It is a story of impossible love that ultimately celebrates the unbreakable bond between father and son. "Developed with director Richard Roxburgh over seven years, ROMULUS, MY FATHER has been adapted for the screen by poet and playwright, Nick Drake. It is both Richard and Nick's first feature film and is produced by Arenafilm; a partnership between Robert Connolly and John Maynard, with credits that include most recently THREE DOLLARS, THE BANK, Rowan Woods' THE BOYS, Jane Campion's SWEETIE and Vincent Ward's THE NAVIGATOR."
