Real and phenomenal
1 March 2016 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I first saw this TV series on a plane thinking that the plot sounds interesting. Little did I know that the TV series will bring me fully into the story.

Typically for Australian movies, it has realistic aspect of acting and story-telling, especially if compared with US movies. It has a dark feel, however it brings different shades of humans, pointing out that we all have our vulnerabilities.

The acting is very smooth and at times it feels that you are watching a documentary rather than a fiction (is it? not sure).

A great discovery to watch!
