"The Slap is a bold, provocative television drama series that forensically examines the mores and morality of contemporary middleclass life. Based on Christos Tsiolkas' bestselling novel, this 8 part drama series traces the shattering repercussions of a single event upon a group of family and friends. The series starts at an Australian backyard BBQ. Amongst alcohol, friendship and a children's cricket game a man slaps a child who is not his son. The party comes to a sudden halt. The child's parents are so affronted they vow to take the man to court. As the series unfolds the police become involved and friends and family are forced to take sides. One cousin is forced to testify against another. Couples are caught in the crossfire. Beliefs are tested and relationships strained. The story is told through the points of view of eight characters as the court case proceeds, as affairs begin and end, as a pregnancy is decided and marriages morph and change. Each character's life is profoundly affected by "the slap", and each of the main character is metaphorically slapped as they are forced to face up to fundamental truths about themselves. The Slap explores what happens when the veil of civility that binds us as a society, is rent aside by one disturbing action. It brings to vivid life questions of parenting, the rights of children, race, class, sexuality, and the different perspectives of men and women"--ABC website

Last seen dangling from a balloon drifting across the Sydney skyline, Cleaver Greene (Richard Roxburgh) crashes back to earth - literally and metaphorically, when he's propelled through a harbourside window into the unwelcoming embrace of chaos past. Fleeing certain revenge, Cleaver hightails it to a quiet country town, the reluctant member of a congregation led by a stern, decent reverend and his flirtatious daughter. Before long Cleaver's being chased back to Sin City. But Sydney has become a dark place: terrorist threats and a loss of faith in authority have seen it take a turn towards the dystopian. When Cleaver finally emerges, he will be accompanied by a Mistress of the Black Arts, navigating a yellow brick road leading straight to our dark corridors of power. Twisting and weaving the stories of the ensemble of characters we've grown to love over three stellar seasons, Series 4 of Rake continues the misadventures of dissolute Cleaver Greene and casts the fool's gaze on all levels of politics, the legal system, and our wider fears and obsessions

"On any single day, Cleaver Greene is described as many things. Whilst his ex-wife may call him 'unreliable', his son will call him 'a mate'. To his learned friends at the bar table he is 'a real wag', to his jurors he is 'hilarious', and to most judges he is 'an outrage'. To the Tax Office, he is 'a defendant'; to a certain brothel owner 'a legend', and to his former cocaine dealer, 'a tragic loss'. The clients he loves the most - the cases that thrill him - are those that appear to be utterly hopeless. There's something about being on the wrong side of conventional wisdom that feels right to him, be it at the bar table or the dinner table. He does whatever it takes to defend and save life's truly lost souls. And at the same time, he will struggle to save himself falling back into the abyss that has characterised most of his self-destructive adult life thus far"--Container insert
