The award-winning Australian novel, Boy Swallows Universe has been set to film in a gritty, and hopeful 7-part mini-series on Netflix.



Released by Harper Collins Australia, the cult and commercial classic book, Boy Swallows Universe was penned by Brisbane-born journalist and author, Trent Dalton. The book tells the story of Eli Bell and his brother August who live in various homes across Brisbane amidst a challenging backdrop of drug dealers, drug addiction, loss and hope.

Through this circumstance, Eli remains cheeky and optimistic and embraces the love within his family and the new loves of books, writing and a special girl who helps to shape and shift his life forever.

Since its release Boy Swallows Universe has won the acclaim of the literary community and book reading public and has been nominated for a raft of awards including winning the 2019 ABIA Book of the Year Award.



Now, this favoured Australian book has been transformed into a seven-part mini-series on Netflix.

The drama stars accomplished Australian Internationally acclaimed actors Brian Brown, Simon Denny, and Phoebe Tonkin (as Eli's mother, Frankie Bell) to bring these sometimes traumatised, lively larrikin but always exceptional characters to life. The film adaptation premiered in Brisbane on 9 January 2024 with a red carpet lineup of the stars at the New Farm Cinema in attendance.

To catch the series for yourself, you can see all seven episodes of Boy Swallows Universe on Netflix on January 11 at 6pm.

Be sure to look out for local Brisbane landmarks, with the series having been filmed in glorious BrizVegas. Don't miss Boy Swallows Universe. For Trent and for Brisbane, this one is deeply personal.
