Review of The Slap

60 minutes

Uma Thurman and Peter Sarsgaard will headline the complex family drama about what happens after a man slaps another couple’s misbehaving child. The seemingly minor domestic dispute pulls the family apart, begins to expose long-held secrets and ignites a lawsuit that challenges the core American values of all who are pulled into it.

Let us know why you think this review is inappropriate.

I am looking forward to this American adaptation. I saw the Australian production and thought the story was universal so now that it is here it will be interesting to see how it is received. The story is based on Christos Tsiolkas' best-selling novel. Each episode exposes each person involved in the SLAP, giving a back story of the character as well as their motivation/involvement in the SLAP. As in the Australian performance, a stellar cast has been assembled. Melissa George plays Rosie in both productions.
