Watch: Hearts and Bones 2019 123movies, Full Movie Online – In Ben Lawrence’s beautifully acted debut feature, a war photographer Hugo Weaving and a refugee Andrew Luri discover a photograph that threatens to destroy them both. Daniel Fisher Weaving returns home, and despite his partner’s protests, prepares for his next dangerous overseas assignment. At the same time, he is preparing for an upcoming retrospective exhibition of his work from the world’s war zones. South Sudanese refugee, Sebastian Aman Luri has built a life in Australia, living happily with his wife and young child. When he learns that Daniel’s exhibition may display photographs of a massacre in Sebastian’s village 15 years earlier, he finds Daniel and appeals to him to exclude those photographs. An unlikely friendship develops between the two men, but it is severely tested when Daniel makes a shocking discovery. Hearts and Bones centres around the relationship of these two men, from very different backgrounds, who bond over their shared trauma. Andrew Luri, who has never acted before and was driving a garbage truck when he auditioned for the role, and Hugo Weaving both brilliantly convey the intricate relationship between the men. With these two powerful performances at its centre, Ben Lawrence has made an intelligent, morally complex and deeply moving film..
Plot: A shell-shocked photojournalist, haunted by what he has witnessed on assignment in Africa, returns home on the eve of becoming a father. When one of his photographs threatens to destroy a Sudanese refugee’s new life, the two men are reunited by nightmare events from the past.

I will give this one a ten
There have been some Australian movie gems that have been important and very watchable and this is one of them. Excellent acting, a very good, realistic script, a story that should be told. I’m not sure if in real life the ending would be quite so happy but I’m glad this one was as it felt right for this film. A must watch for any serious movie goer who appreciates reality and the human journey, friendships that go beyond and for a change, relationships that are open about fragility and vulnerability without a host of ugly games. A very good film.
War photographer Dan Fisher (Hugo Weaving) has a devastating incident in Iraq. He returns home to Australia where he’s preparing to stage an exhibition. South Sudanese refugee Sebastian Ahmed has issues with his photos.
This movie has some big ideas and asks some big questions. As a movie, it’s a little slow, a little long, and falls a little flat. Weaving and newcomer Andrew Luri do good work. Ben Lawrence seems to be more of a documentary filmmaker. He needs help putting more tension into the film.
