Surprisingly good!!
14 November 2008 | by (Adelaide, Australia) – See all my reviews

This TV film surprised me. The first half hour or so looked so much like melodrama that I found myself distracted by conversations with family members. The main characters - husband and wife, Michael and Stephanie - seemed elusive, and even a trifle stereotyped. Wrong!!! This is a story of domestic violence, but the full story, the real story is not fully revealled until the final 2-3 minutes, and what a story that is! What we see, what we're given during the exposition of the film is not the whole story. We're given mere pieces of flash-back, and nothing truly adds up or makes sense until the final dramatic scene. I was then quite shocked by my own judgements about the characters, obviously formed from my personal prejudices.

The lead roles are skillfully crafted by both the writer, Alison Hume, and by the two lead actors, Robson Green and Saira Todd - Todd in particular walks a fine line in her performance as the ambitious, but edgy and wounded wife. In looking back, her Stephanie gave away a lot of 'truths' throughout the film, but which were easy to overlook, but obvious in hindsight.

This film shows scenes of domestic violence, so is not for everyone, but it's definitely worth a look.
