Cloudstreet the Screenplay


Formats & editions


Tim Winton has worked with Ellen Fontana to translate the funny, sprawling saga of Cloudstreet into a brilliantly written TV miniseries.

Twenty years after its publication, Australia's favourite novel has finally come to life on the screen. Adapted for television by Tim Winton and Ellen Fontana, Cloudstreet is a rambunctious saga of haunting, loving and letting go.

This companion to the miniseries includes the complete shooting script, an essay by producer Greg Haddrick on the process of adaptation, and scores of evocative photographs from the production.
