QUICK BITES

Lik­able lo­cal drama con­tin­ues. I can’t say this is in the rush home or set the recorder cat­e­gory, but it’s plea­sur­able view­ing, not least be­cause it was made in By­ron Shire, north­ern NSW, which, as thou­sands of surfers in search of them­selves will tell you, is one of the most beau­ti­ful places in the world. For any­one familiar with the area, the ed­its are a scream. Susie Porter’s char­ac­ter Eve parks her car near Main Beach but emerges on Tal­low Beach. Soap is some­how less soapy in a beau­ti­ful if frag­mented place.

In the af­ter­math of last week’s shock­ing crash, there are emo­tional thrills and spills.
