Wake in Fright (Channel 10 2017, Sean Keenan, David Wenham)

In two part crime thriler Wake in Fright teacher John Grant has just finished a post teaching at a tiny school deep in the Australian outback. He is returning to Sydney but, after his car hits a Kangaroo, he ends up stuck in a small mining town whilst his car is fixed.

Despite receiving a warm welcome from the locals Grant is soon very much out of his depth and in serious trouble.

Based on Kenneth Cook’s intense heat soaked 1961 novel which was also filmed in 1971 with English actor Gary Bond in the lead role.
