Two flawed families, each scarred by catastrophe, find a home for their hearts in an acclaimed Australian miniseries. Adapted by Tim Winton from his award-winning novel, set around Perth from 1943-63, it's gripping, poignant, and gorgeous. The Lambs are hardworking and God-fearing, the Pickles are luckless and derelict, yet they find common ground beneath the same roof. Exquisitely filmed with an outstanding ensemble cast led by Kerry Fox.

I thought this was a great series--it really brought the story to life and the story
was already a good one!!

Fabulously acted and filmed. Turning on the subtitles is advisable. Tim Winton co-wrote the screenplay, so in a way we get a second version of the novel twenty years after the first, in a new medium. Really worth seeing, for those who love the novel and others.

Wonderful series! Enjoyable and creative! The household consisted of some people who behave in a strange way that is explained as the story goes on.. The two families, often supported each other, through the ups-and-downs of life, and at the other times, drove each other crazy..The came to really care for one another...Memorable! I highly recommend it!

Sexual Content: While there is no nudity, but promiscuity and intercourse shown with a number of people.. Excessive drunkeness, esp of one person..Not a family show..
