Some critics prefer this adaptation to the book
23 November 2011 | by See all my reviews

The unfulfilled lives of a number of people are brought into focus at a seemingly happy suburban get-together by the single slap of a child.

All is not as it seems as each of the protagonists lives is then laid bare in subsequent episodes of this excoriating, first-class Australian drama.Perhaps the slap is merely a catalyst for the truth to unfold. Maybe the slap needed to happen for these people to get on with their lives without the baggage of the past. Make up your own mind.

It's easy to see something of yourself in these lives and maybe that is why a couple of reviewers here have played the 'unlikeable characters' card to dismiss this adaptation. Also, I believe the female characters are strong and their friendships quite solid in spite of certain cracks appearing under pressure. If this is misogynistic writing it has eluded me. The men fare less well.

If you prefer sugary Disney-like characters going through the motions in mind-numbing scenarios, then The Slap is not for you.9/10
