LOU (2010) SBS ONE, 11.10PM, M, DRAMA
A single mother ( Suburban Mayhem’s Emily Barclay) takes care of her ailing father in-law (British actor John Hurt) for some extra cash, but it’s her oldest daughter Lou (Lily Bell Tindley) who shoulders most of the responsibility in this gentle drama. It’s a classic set-up – a household thrown into turmoil when a stranger arrives – but director Belinda Chayko crafts a touching family tale. ★★★
Nothing off limits: Owen Wilson in HallPass.
