Minis­eries: Ap­ple Tree Yard

Balonne Beacon - - LIFE -

Satur­day, abc, 8.30pm

An adap­ta­tion of Louise Doughty’s best-selling psy­cho­log­i­cal thriller of the same name, this four-part minis­eries is raunchy. And dis­turb­ing, too. Emily Wat­son (The Book Thief) stars as Yvonne Carmichael, a suc­cess­ful sci­en­tist whose li fe is se­ri­ously de­railed af­ter a chance meet­ing with a hand­some stranger

(Ben Chap­lin) and an over­flow of hor­mones. Mar­ried to the rather bor­ing Gary (Mark Bon­nar), Yvonne be­gins an ex­cit­ing af­fair, but when ex-lover Ge­orge (Steven El­der) en­ters the pic­ture, the sit­u­a­tion takes a con­fronting and shock­ing turn. If you haven’t read the book, the story’s dark twists will leave an im­pres­sion.
