Australian TV Cloudstreet (Showtime 2011, Essie Davis, Emma Booth) Published 2 years ago on August 28, 2016 Based on Tim Winton’s much loved novel Cloudstreet is given a prestigious 1980’s mini-series style production by Showtime, it take’s us to Perth in the 1940’s and 1950’s and follows the courses of two families, The Lambs and The Pickles, who following seperate issues and tragedies head to the city and end up sharing the same house – Number 1, Cloudstreet. Epic of scope and storytelling, sad and joyful, Cloudstreet is clearly going to stand out as one of the highlights of the Australian viewing year. It’s clearly had lots of money spent on it, even if the plane coming in to land in the opening moments does look a little bit too CGI. It stays remarkable faithful to the source material and certainly doesn’t shy away from showing some of the more graphic elements – including Sam Pickles losing his fingers in a work accident. Quite put us off our tea and biscuits that one. And like the novel it takes a while to settle in as it moves around the large cast of characters and picking up the individual threads of their stories. production details Australia | Showtime Running Time: 120 Minutes | Number Of Episodes: 3 | Airdates: 22 May – 5 June 2011 Writer: Tim Winton, Ellen Fontana | Producers: Greg Haddrick, Brenda Pam, Della Churchill / Director: Matthew Saville cast THE LAMBS GEOFF MORRELL as Lester lamb KERRY FOX as Oriel Lamb TOM RUSSELL as Young Fish Lamb HUGO JOHNSTONE-BURT as Fish Lamb TODD LASANCE as Quick Lamb ANNIE SMITH as Young Elaine Lamb AMANDA WOODHAMS as Red Lamb ADAM SOLLIS as Lon Lamb FREYA TINGLEY as Young Hat Lamb CALLAN McAULIFFE as Young Quick Lamb THE PICKLES ESSIE DAVIS as Dolly Pickles STEPHEN CURRY as Sam Pickles EMMA BOOTH as Rose Pickles LARA ROBINSON as Young Rose Pickles SEAN KEENAN as Ted Pickles WILL MATTOCK as Young Ted Pickles SHANNON LIVELY as Chub Pickles REECE SARDELIC as Young Chub Pickles CloudstreetEmma BoothEssie DavisKerry FoxMatthew SavillePeriod Drama SeriesStephen CurryTim WintonTV Advertisement advertisement and this just in Episodes10 hours ago Your Worst Nightmare: Behind the Barn (S5EP8 ID Sat 23 Feb 2019) Behind the Barn: When 20-year-old college student Kristy Ray is kidnapped from her home in rural Tippah County, Miss., in...
