LOU (2010) SBS ONE, 11.10PM, M, DRAMA

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

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.
