DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
MADGE loves Brian but her father is suddenly steering her towards a boorish English ham named Ollie Whyte (Brett Climo), who is murdered in Queensberry St, North Melbourne in the first few minutes. Flashback a fortnight to Ollie, fresh off the boat, at a welcome dinner with dad (John Waters) and Madge, where we get to meet most of the suspects. This looks gorgeous but lacks sparkle. The story just isn’t that interesting. A lot of good actors (Shane Jacobson and Felix Williamson), but also a fair amount of over-acting. Even the killer is a major letdown.
