Fancy a crime drama with a bit of mystery? Well Sky Cinema brings together Eric Bana, Genevieve O’Reilly and Keir O’Donnell in such a delight from today on the movie service.
Directed by Robert Connolly the film is an adaptation of Jane Harper’s 2016 international bestseller. Federal Agent Aaron Falk (Eric Bana) returns to his drought-stricken hometown after an
absence of over twenty years to attend the funeral of his childhood friend, Luke, who allegedly killed his wife and child before taking his own life.
When Falk reluctantly agrees to stay and investigate the crime, he opens up an old wound – the death of 17- year-old Ellie Deacon. Falk begins to suspect these two crimes, separated by decades, are connected. As he struggles to prove not only Luke’s innocence but also his own, Falk finds himself pitted against the prejudice towards him and pent-up rage of a terrified community.

1991: THE 30 GREATEST HITS
Cheeky chappy and former T4 and Family Fortunes host Vernon Kay is ready and more than willing to countdown the thirty biggest hits from thirty years ago.
Back in 1991 music was a world where Bryan Adams dominated the charts. It was also a time when Nirvana, Chesney Hawkes and Roxette sold countless singles in now much-missed record shops, such as Our Price and Virgin Megastores or even the old Littlewoods Record Department – well maybe not, Top of the Pops was still the king of the pop countdowns and shell suits were all the rage.
