A brilliant adaptation of a true Australian classic!
Come in Spinner was written in the 1940's by Dymphia Cussak and Florence James. This book provides a rare insight into the Australian identity and the effects that WW2 had on the nation. The adaptation, as does the somewhat larger book, follows the fortunes of a week in the lives of the staff of a hotel in Sydney in 1944. Sydney, at this time was virtually a garrison town, with the invasion of American soldiers. Guinea Malone's story (as the good time girl) is by far the most entertaining, whilst her sister's Monnie Malone, is in turn one of the most shocking accounts of abuse ever told.
I hightly recommend this brilliant adaptation, read the book, it is both heart wrenching and hilarious.
