Jack Irish has no shortage of friends, but family members are few and far between. His wife was murdered by an ex-client and his father is a fading photo on the pubs football wall of fame. So when Des Connors, the last link to his dad, calls to ask for help in the matter of a missing son, Jack is more than happy to lend a hand. But sometimes prodigal sons go missing for a reason... As Jack begins to dig, he discovers that Gary Connors was a man with something to hide, and his friends are people with yet darker and even more deadly secrets. Written by
The working class Fitzroy (before being gentrified) gets a loving cameo here; Guy Pearce does an excellent job in getting across a damaged man's recovery. But the real pleasure, on repeated viewings, is the supporting players. Nice photography, and the direction of the action sequences is refreshingly lucid.
