Set in and around Perth during the 1940 sand 1950s, Cloudstreet tells the story of two rural families, the Lambs and the Pickles, who suffer separate catastrophes and flee to the city to pick up the pieces of their lives and start afresh. Brought together in the same house at No.1 Cloud Street, the families share numerous tragedies and triumphs that draw them closer together, until the roof over their heads becomes a home for their hearts. Cloudstreet is released on DVD on 27th February 2012 from 4DVD.
Cloudstreet features a strong ensemble cast including acclaimed New Zealand actress Kerry Fox (An Angel At My Table, Shallow Grave, Bright Star) who plays Oriel Lamb; Geoff Morrell (Grass Roots) as Lester Lamb; Todd Lasance (Home & Away) as Quick Lamb; and Hugo Johnstone-Burt (Underbelly: The Golden Mile) as Fish Lamb; Stephen Curry (The King) as Sam Pickles; Essie Davis (The Matrix Reloaded) as Dolly Pickles; Emma Booth (Clubland) as Rose Pickles.
Grand in scale and expertly realised, Cloudstreet captures the collective dramas of these plucky families with the same intensity as Winton's much-revered book. Directed by Matthew Saville (We Can Be Heroes), this adaptation of Cloudstreet was written by Tim Winton and Ellen Fontana; and produced by Greg Haddrick and Brenda Pam.
Presented for the first time on DVD, and including a host of exclusive special features, Cloudstreet offers a beautiful portrayal of two very different families who overcome adversity to find common ground...
