Little room to bloom
4 January 2019 | by catherine-35345See all my reviews

Bloom makes a valiant effort at trying to carry a wafer thin script over 6 hour long episodes but comes up well short. Firstly the positives it is beautifully shot with top class cinematography, there are some nuanced preformances from the likes of Brian Brown and Jackie Weaver but the standout performance is Ryan Corr who steals the show with his multilayered complex performance, a true star in the making. Sadly Phoebe Tonkin does not have the acting prowess nor the script to make the character of Gwen anyway intriguing nor memorable but the weakest link acting wise is that of Max played by an OTT clunky cringing Sam Reid whom gives a truly hammy performance. The script could have been edited to four episodes as six is much too long for a dragged out premise. If there is to be a second series I hope Ryan Corr's character could be explored further a much tighter condensed series could figuratively bloom
