An awesome review of Elizabeth’s new TV project The Kettering Project has been published by the Guardian. Below is a little snippet, however there is a link to read the rest to avoid potential spoilers. The Guardian also awarded it 4/5 stars!
Australia’s smallest state is the undeniable star – along with Elizabeth Debicki – of Foxtel’s new eight-part thriller about the disappearance of two girls.
“It’s a very personal story,” The Kettering Incident co-creator Vicki Madden says. “Not just my personal journey – a very Tasmanian story.”
It’s Wednesday, and Madden, her co-creator Vincent Sheehan and the core cast of Kettering are at Hobart’s Museum of Old and New Art to present a two-episode preview of Foxtel’s new eight-part thriller. It’s hard to disagree with Madden. Kettering, which won the prestigious Series Mania award when it premiered in Paris in April, is 21st century Tasmanian gothic par excellence.

And Tasmania is, without question, the star of the show – with apologies to lead actress Elizabeth Debicki, whose Hollywood ascendancy meant she was stuck in Los Angeles and couldn’t attend the preview. Her co-star Matthew Le Nevez describes Debicki as “a beautiful, intelligent and emotionally complex actor; she worked harder than anyone and sacrificed her physical self”.
