That Eye, The Sky
That Eye, The Sky is a drama based on a novel
by Tim Winton about a family who are learning to cope after their
patriarch is left in a vegetative state after a car accident.
Ort is a young boy who is coming to terms with
his father's disposition and firmly believes that his father will be
back to himself. Their mother (Lisa Harrow) is struggling with
everything and the daughter Tegwyn (Amanda Douge) is looking to get
away from the house and move to the city for a better life. When a
drifter, Henry (Peter Coyote), offers to help out free of charge
with the upkeep of the father, he will change all of their lives.
You know what you're going to get with Tim
Winton stories, families attempting to overcome the odds. This film
is solid without being all that memorable. Cloud Street is
definitely the Tim Winton story of choice, but this is still worth a
Amanda Douge film clip
