FELONY ( M)

Sunday Tasmanian - Tassie Living - - MOVIES -

A SOLID Aus­tralian drama that poses a diffi cult eth­i­cal ques­tion and doesn’t shirk the hard yards it will have to cover to fi nd an an­swer. Is any­one truly safe when a pro­tec­tor is a pro­tected species? Don’t go ask­ing Mal­colm ( Joel Edger­ton). The dec­o­rated plain­clothes de­tec­tive em­bod­ies a prob­lem that may be be­yond a so­lu­tion. Shortly af­ter dodg­ing a breathal­yser test, Mal­colm hits a child with his car. He doesn’t drive off, but he doesn’t own up. The dam­ag­ing rip­ple ef­fect of this fate­ful in­ci­dent con­tin­ues to widen as Mal­colm dis­cov­ers get­ting away with it won’t get him any sense of re­lief. Other in­ter­ested par­ties would rather the dirty hush- up re­mained in place. Stick with it and it pays one hell of a pos­i­tive ( if pun­ish­ing) div­i­dend.
