DIANNE BUT­LER OUT OF THE BOX

Herald Sun - Switched On - - Thursday - RED­FERN NOW, ABC1, 8.30pm

I FULLY expected the fam­ily hol­i­day to Bali to be can­celled be­cause Wes­ley (Alec Do­madgee) couldn’t get the bags into the boot of the cab, but it’s the phone call from Grace’s (Leah Pur­cell) sis­ter’s boy that’s the prob­lem. Tyler’s ring­ing be­cause his mother is off the rails again. And then be­gins the or­deal of Grace sud­denly hav­ing to deal with all that, while Wes­ley, not the most un­der­stand­ing hus­band, cools his heels with their two kids at home while the me­ter runs. A promis­ing start is some­what squan­dered as this lurches from a pow­er­ful drama on to softer ground, but no fault lies with the act­ing.
