This Screenplay of Romulus, My Father is based on Raimond Gaita's critically acclaimed memoir

It tells the story of Romulus, his beautiful wife, Christina, and their struggle in the face of great adversity to bring up their son, Raimond

It is a story of impossible love that ultimately celebrates the unbreakable bond between father and son - the story of how a compassionate and honest man taught his son the meaning of living a decent life, triumphing over a new life in Australia scarred by profound tragedy

The young Raimond is ultimately saved from the downward spiral of these circumstances by the compassion and honesty of his father

Romulus, My Father was adapted for the screen by poet and playwright, Nick Drake and developed with director Richard Roxburgh over seven years

The book contains an extended foreword by Raimond Gaita which gives profound insight into the process of moving from memoir to screenplay to film

It also includes significant scenes omitted from the film which shed further light on both the story and the process

Together they unearth important detail behind this extraordinary film
