20 June 2006 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This is actually a very good 'made for television' movie. Based on an true murder investigation in Melbourne Australia, it has been well adapted for television and very well directed. The casting of some excellent Australian actors has enabled the characters to be brought to life by acting that is consistently good. The viewer gets a real feeling of being in the room with the victims' family as they await the arrest of the murderer, all the time feeling it may have been one of them. The expert editing adds to the realism and the dialogue is unusually well written for an Australian production. This is not a thriller but a drama based on a family tragedy. This production serves to highlight the shame of so little investment in drama by Australian television networks. A good effort and worth watching.
