Did you buy a DVD from our store last month? Then you went in the running to win a copy of The Broken Shore, the acclaimed film starring Don Hany and Claudia Karvan.
The Broken Shore is an evocative crime thriller set against a background of police corruption, racism and family tragedy.
Joe Cashin (Don Hany) is a Homicide Detective transferred to the small Victorian coastal town of Port Monro where he grew up. When wealthy benefactor Charles Bourgoyne dies, Joe’s investigation uncovers a cycle of lies, betrayal and systematic corruption in a community where tensions over race, class and politics are at boiling point.
Capturing the chilling action and laconic wit of Peter Temple’s acclaimed The Broken Shore, this television adaptation filmed against the rugged south-east Victorian coastline brings alive the novel’s cast of complex characters as it slowly reveals the shocking face behind a community’s respectable mask.
