PLAY ON- DE­MAND TELE­VI­SION BATEMAN STILL ON THE MONEY

Townsville Bulletin - - PLAY - JUSTIN BURKE

off the top, their ar­range­ment is im­per­illed, and Byrde’s only op­tion is to re­launch the op­er­a­tion in Mis­souri’s Ozarks.

His wife, Wendy, played by Laura Lin­ney, is nei­ther in the dark about her hus­band’s af­fairs nor en­tirely blame­less in her own con­duct. But their chil­dren, played by Sofia Hublitz and Sky­lar Gaert­ner, are re­cal­ci­trant and con­fused about the dras­tic changes to their life. Nat­u­rally, the re­gion is not the bu­colic tab­ula rasa it might seem to out­siders. While the land­scapes are stun­ning, they ob­scure an ex­ist­ing ecosys­tem of crim­i­nal­ity.

Bateman, who also di­rected sev­eral episodes, is out­stand­ing. He says: “I’m al­ways drawn to play­ing the per­son that is most eas­ily re­lat­able to the au­di­ence. I like hav­ing the re­spon­si­bil­ity to process things for the au­di­ence and spit out, in words or in ex­pres­sion, how the au­di­ence could or should feel about what they’ve just seen or heard. And that was easy to do with this guy.”

Ozark is com­pelling, nec­es­sary view­ing.
