The complicated relationship between Percy Grainger, famous Australian-born early 20th century folk musician, and his abusive unstable mother that lead to his interest in S&M, instability and failed relationships with women.
Beneath the placid facade of Canberra, amidst rising tension between China and America, senior political journalist Harriet Dunkley uncovers a secret city of interlocked conspiracies, putting innocent lives in danger including her own.
I liked this made for TV Movie. I was encouraged to write this commentary after seeing that the voting for this movie was very low (2.4 I think).
I cannot talk for anyone else but I thought it was a very entertaining movie made for Aussie TV with fine Aussie actors on board.
It is worth noting , and this is for Aussie viewers only, because in other places you don'd understand the situation with our national network, it is good to see ABC (Australia) making good Aussie drama and you can put this one in that category.
Rhys Muldoon impressed with his performance as the mysterious drifter who arrives in town and is forced to stay and work out his penalty. During the time of his stay he has this affect on the township which culminates with the satisfactory conclusion.
I don't care if this storyline has been done before, my point is it hasn't been done before in this sleepy and lazy old Victorian township who is struggling for survival and is helped out by this visitor.
Very enjoyable and another good one for ABC Drama Australia.
Keep it up.
