TIM WINTON’S CLOUDSTREET
SOHO ( FOXTEL), 1.30pm
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.
