Your next box set: The Secret Life of Us

11 November 2010 10:45 PM, PST | The Guardian - TV News | See recent The Guardian - TV News news »

A big hit back home in Australia, The Secret Life of Us follows the exploits of a group of smart, sexy Melbournites, and captures life's ups and downs with thrilling, kinetic accuracy

Conceived as This Life with a sense of humour, The Secret Life of Us is something of a secret itself. Huge in its native Australia for four seasons between 2001 and 2005, this smart, sexy, upmarket soap about Melbourne twentysomethings was only a cult hit in the UK, squirrelled away on late-night Channel 4.

As Melbourne is the hipster capital of Australia, a back-to-back viewing of these hour-long shows can cause serious envy in British viewers. Sunshine, blue skies, sea views, more time in the park than the workplace, beautiful people everywhere – life's a beach, right mate?

Certainly, few shows have depicted life's joys so joyously (highlights include a laughter epidemic and a nude wedding). But, conversely, few have captured life's comedowns so kinetically. »

What is the Reel Australia?

12 October 2010 8:04 PM, PDT | FilmInk.com.au | See recent FilmInk.com.au news »

Many of us see Australia in different ways - from outback deserts to busy city life - which is why the Australia Day Council of Nsw (Adcnsw) began the short film competition, Reel Australia. Now in its second year, the unique competition asks Australians to capture who they think we are via a two minute short film.   Acclaimed Aussie actors Gyton Grantley (Underbelly, Beneath Hill 60) and Deborah Mailman (Offspring, The Secret Life Of Us, Bran Nue Dae), and revered Australian director Ray Lawrence (Lantana, Jindabyne) will judge the competition based on four core elements: family and mateship, freedom, community and pride. »
