Transmission Films has announced that Dead Europe will be released nationally on November 1. The film which is adapted from the novel by Christos Tsiolkas, recently played in competition at the Sydney Film Festival and is screening at the upcoming Toronto International Film Festival.

Dead Europe is directed by Tony Krawitz, and is produced by Liz Watts, Emile Sherman and Iain Canning. It stars Ewen Leslie, Marton Csokas and Kodi Smit-McPhee.

I was not a huge fan of the book as I found the main character to be extremely arrogant and not someone I could relate to at all. However, I am quite interested to see how the book has been adapted – especially some of the more supernatural elements.
