A pivotal year in the life of Ben
The Family Law, SBS, Saturday at 8.30pm
EVERYONE’S favourite Chinese-Australian family, The Laws, are back for one final spin, this time with added hormone-induced angst and awkward, sexual fumbling.
During a particularly harrowing sex education module, Melissa and Benjamin (Bethany Whitmore and Trystan Go, pictured) excitedly scheme to get into a Year 12 party where there’ll be booze and – more importantly for Melissa – boys.
Despite his reservations, Benjamin tries to sweet-talk Jenny and Danny into letting him go, but encounters a roadblock in his way with Jenny insisting Benjamin is still too young for Aussie teen parties.
As Jenny dives head first into the giddy world of new romance, Benjamin finally faces up to some hard truths about himself.
