THE SLAP

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Weekly Preview -

ABC1, Thurs­day, 8.30pm ★★★★ Boy, can Melissa Ge­orge act. That will come as no sur­prise to those who have seen her op­po­site Gabriel Byrne in the Foxtel se­ries In Treat­ment. But view­ers who have watched her in not much other than Home and Away will no doubt be blown away by her pow­er­house per­for­mance in The Slap. This ABC drama has a mighty en­sem­ble but would have failed dis­mally if Ge­orge hadn’t been able to de­liver in the de­mand­ing role of Rosie. Each episode is told from a par­tic­u­lar char­ac­ter’s view­point and tonight it’s Rosie’s turn. She’s hell­bent on hav­ing her day in court, mak­ing Harry (Alex Dim­i­tri­ades) pay for slap­ping her child at a back­yard bar­be­cue. Grip­ping stuff. DD
