Jabba reviews The Dry, based on the million selling debut novel from Jane Harper.
Eric Bana plays Federal copper Aaron Falk who turns up in his home town in rural Victoria after two decades away. The region is in the grip of a year long drought – hence The Dry – and he returns to attend the funeral of his childhood friend Luke and Luke’s wife and young son.
Is this a murder suicide as the town believes, or has something even more sinister occurred? This one is a cracker as every single person in the small town has a secret or two and the story twists and turns as we try and find the elusive truth to the whodunnit. 4 Stars.
