TIM WIN­TON’S CLOUD­STREET

SOHO ( FOXTEL), 1.30pm

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - TV -

CLOUD­STREET is an epic, mag­nif­i­cently crafted pro­duc­tion. The TV adap­ta­tion of the Tim Win­ton novel ovel is set in and around Perth in the 1940s and ’ 50s and charts the lives of two ru­ral fam­i­lies – the Pick­les and the Lambs mbs – who suf­fer sep­a­rate catas­tro­phes and try to start their lives over ver again. The fam­i­lies are brought to­gether un­der the roof of 1 Cloud oud St, a huge house that has been in­her­ited by the oth­er­wise luck­less kless Sam Pick­les ( Stephen Curry, pic­tured). Some may ques­tion whether ether Cloud­street should have re­mained as it was, un­tainted by the frail­ties rail­ties and con­ces­sions of the filmed medium. Don’t lis­ten to them. hem. This is a class act.
