“It’s a very different role for me,” Thornton said. “I don’t want to reveal too much about her, but she’s mysterious. And hopefully unpredictable. And she can be a nasty piece of work.”
Directed by Scott Otto Anderson, Dream Life tells the story of a desperate young man who resorts to blackmail in order to pay his father’s dangerous debts.
He discovers it’s surprising how many of his neighbours in an unspecified but well-manicured suburb have skeletons they are keen to keep in their closet.
The stand-alone drama, also stars Xavier Samuel (Newcastle, September), Adelaide Clemens (Love My Way, Wolverine), Linda Cropper and Andrew McFarlane, has been created with a TV series in mind.
“It’s a bold script. I’ve never seen anything like it on Australian TV,” Thornton said.
