LEIGH PAATSCH OUT OF THE BOX
THE OTHER MAN, Channel 9, 9.30pm
AS this unconventional romantic drama begins, sure-footed businessman Peter (Liam Neeson) has been given the boot by his shoe-designer wife Lisa (Laura Linney). Without being given a single reason. If the dumpee wants any answers from the dumper, he will have to be patient, focused and, above all else, prepared to find out the worst. And so, our heartbroken hero makes tracks to Italy, where he intends to confront the man he holds responsible for ruining his life (Antonio Banderas). A fragmented narrative keeps the real emotional impact from ever truly kicking in, but works well enough as a curiosity piece.
