Two brothers accidentally run over and kill an old man. Despite covering their tracks, their lives start to fall apart when neighbors and relatives of the dead man begin to have doubts about the way he died.
Excellent drama stripping down the moral facade of the Canberra political scene and the overarching desire for power and the associated greed that goes with it.
Deborah Mailman and Rachel Griffiths give powerful performances. Of course, both characters needed to be women to bring validity to a narrative that seeks to expose male hypocrisy. If Rachel Griffith's charater as prime minister had been a male, this would have fueled the argument that the intent was steeped purely in feminist male-bashing and reduced its overall effect.
Perhaps the only criticism I have is the cleverly nuanced portrayal of indigenous people with only minor flaws while those outside their community are beyond help.
Great acting by all concerned and terrific direction by Rachel Perkins.
