The Hothouse follows the complicated lives of five 20-somethings who share a run down inner-city Wellington dwelling.

7/10
Author: nevynh from New Zealand
26 April 2007

New New Zealand drama, The Hothouse follows the complicated lives of five 20-somethings who share a run down inner-city Wellington dwelling. The Hothouse is a contemporary drama with moments of black humor, that explores themes of loyalty, morality, friendship and, of course, love. Cops Daniel, Ruth and Neru, and lawyer Isobel are long-term flatmates. When Levi Wise, a charming rogue who's secretly on the wrong side of the law, joins the house, the delicate balance of the flat is upset in one swoop. The black and white line between right and wrong becomes increasingly blurred with shades of gray, as the 'upholders of the law' struggle with their inextricably entwined professional dilemmas and personal lives. A delightful short series made in New Zealand. Gritty and sensual in all the right places. Only 7 episodes long, this drama concludes well while still leaving you wanting more. The same guys also made "The Insiders Guide to Happiness" and "The Insiders Guide to Love", both of which were brilliant, and while this wasn't as good, it's still definitely worth a watch.
