User Reviews

If you want the music....
24 August 2018 | by trancelucenceSee all my reviews

Loved the mini-series, and the music, and want to mention that I watched it on Acorn with closed captions on and it provides the name and singer of every song, so that's one way you can track down most of the music. I must add that I don't agree with those who opined that Judy Davis was too old to play the police chief. She was near the end of her career, obviously, but you'd want someone experienced, mature, forceful, decisive, etc., and those qualities increase with age and experience. It ain't a beauty contest (though I love her expressive face). I thought she played it just right, very real, flaws intact. Extremely good acting by all concerned. Enjoyed this mini-series very much, watched it straight through.
