Okay mini-series
24 January 2005 | by See all my reviews

This mini-series was nothing spectacular, but it was okay all round...okay directing, okay cinematography, okay acting, okay everything else. Nothing really stood out for me, although I did find that the cast did show a good display of Australian talent, particularly Miranda Otto, Grant Bowler and the children who played the Chamberlain kids.

This is a blow-by-blow account of the true story of Lindy and Azaria Chamberlain - a baby went missing when her family was on a camping trip in the desert in the middle of Australia, and although the family and others maintained a dingo had taken the baby, eventually the parents were tried for the murder (despite there never being any body). It is a tragic story in all respects, and this mini-series did it justice (as far as I could tell) by trying to include every bit of information, making the physical appearances (such as locations and clothes) exactly like they were in real life (based upon photos and old footage) and not forcing the viewer to pass judgment. A couple of over-dramatised imagination scenes are really annoying, but otherwise it's just fact after fact, unlike the Meryl Streep movie made a while ago about it.

It does get a bit tedious and repetitive after a while, and it certainly goes on for a long time, but it's...okay.
