Upright

Upright

When family outcast Lucky Flynn learns that his mother is dying, he decides to drive to the other side of Australia to see her, packing nothing but an upright piano for the journey. But his plans are soon turned upside down when he meets the runaway teenager Meg, who’s dealing with some family demons of her own. Together they forge an unlikely friendship, as they embark on a road-trip adventure across the Nullarbor Plains in a race against time. Over eight hot days, Lucky and Meg drive, hitch and scam their way across the scorching desert continent –with the upright piano never leaving their side -on a journey that will ultimately make them both feel more at peace with everything in life that they’ve been kicking against.

Absolutely beautifully written. I think the season finished perfectly. I can’t recommend this enough. The dynamic between the main two characters is brilliant and heartbreaking - the development especially is what hooked me. I laughed, I cried, and I would watch it all over again feeling exactly the same as I feel now that I’ve finished it for the first time.

Excellent. Such great acting. Quirky. Funny. Surprising. Deeply felt.

I'm a huge Tim Minchin fan, so I had high expectations (autocorrect made that exorcism, which I suspect he'd find amusing,) for this. I was not disappointed. It was so very good! Casting was amazing. Milly Alcock was perfection as Meg, and that's just one example. I highly recommend this to anyone who loves a beautiful redemption story.
