THE BROKEN SHORE
MOVIE, 8.30PM, ABC1
Before the first scene rolls The Broken Shore – based on the Peter Temple novel of the same name – is already a heavy hitter, thanks to a bumper Aussie cast which includes Don Hany, Claudia Karvan, Anthony Hayes, Dan Wyllie, Catherine McClements and Noni Hazlehurst. Hany ( Serangoon Road) plays tortured homicide detective Joe Cashin, retreating to the village he grew up in, with his customary gravity. It’s a dark and taut thriller as Hany battles his own ghosts and a new case raises the demons of racism, corruption and longguarded secrets.
