Australian screen legend Eric Bana plays the lead role of Aaron Falk in the film adaptation of The Dry by Made Up Stories.
The Dry was filmed across more than 15 towns in rural Victoria in 2019, with Robert Connolly (Balibo, Paper Planes) directing.
Bruna Papandrea, Jodi Matterson and Steve Hutensky produced The Dry for Made Up Stories.
The movie grossed more than $20.5m at the Australian box office ahead of being released overseas.
Bana said he had already read and felt a deep connection with the book before he was approached to play the lead.
"Jane had plotted this amazing journey that we then got to turn into the best possible version for cinema," he said.
More than 1 million copies of The Dry have been sold worldwide.
