Sonya Hartnett Film Adaptation

| No TrackBacks
Strange how I come across little snippets of Australian literary news out on the interweb that either skips by me or the Australian media, or both.  The latest thing I'd never heard of is the film adaptation of Sonya Hartnett's novel Of a Boy.  Not such a strange thing really, except that the film is to be titled "Weight of Elephants" and is to be made in New Zealand. 

I'm guessing the name change came about due to the similarilty between the novel's title and the 2002 Hugh Grant film "About a Boy", but who really knows.  I sure don't remember any elephants in the book.  There doesn't appear to be any mention of the film on the "International Movie dataBase".
