The Hawke telemovie, starring Richard Roxburgh, will air at 8:30pm Sunday July 18th on TEN.
The bio-pic wins a glowing review from Colin Vickery in today’s Herald Sun, describing it as “the best Aussie drama in a decade.”
That’s a big call.
“The scenes between Bob and Hazel are quietly devastating,” he notes.
“It is a credit to the makers of Hawke that Australian viewers will have so many mixed emotions about our former prime minister. By turn, Hawke is caring, arrogant, visionary, boorish, emotional, loving, calculating and more.
“Hawke is a major achievement. Don’t miss it.”
Sounds like a winner -can it top The Dismissal?
