"Winton is a one-man band of genius." -Los Angeles Times
"Funny, warm, real, heartbreaking and altogether masterly" -The Guardian (U.K.)
"Stunning" -Western Mail (U.K.)
"Infused with Winton’s rich language" -The Sydney Morning Herald (Australia)
Adapted by Tim Winton from his award-winning novel, this acclaimed Australian miniseries is gripping, poignant, and gorgeous. Set around Perth from 1943-63, it tells the story of two rural families, each scarred by catastrophe, who end up sharing a large, ramshackle house that shudders and groans with memories of its own.
The Lambs are hardworking, God-fearing, and devastated by a horrific accident. The Pickles are luckless and derelict, blown by the winds of fate and their own bad decisions. The families couldn’t be more different, yet they find common ground beneath the same roof. Years pass and they stay together, shouting, brawling, laughing, loving, and enduring. Exquisitely filmed with an outstanding ensemble cast led by Kerry Fox (An Angel at My Table), Cloudstreet is "a triumph" (The Australian).
