DIANNE BUTLER OUT OF THE BOX
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.
