Beautiful Lie, The (ABC 2015 | Sarah Snook, Rodger Corser)

nna is married to Alex, fifteen years her senior, both living off the spoils of their high profile sporting careers. Anna’s been able to juggle career and family up until now when her brother Kingsley is caught philandering. Anna is called on to intervene, and the issue of infidelity rises to the surface.

She finds herself dangerously attracted to Skeet, a charming dilettante who has rejected the apparently innocent Kitty. Skeet in turn becomes obsessed with Anna and willing to forgo his own music career to win her enduring love.

A contemporary re-imagining of Tolstoy’s ‘Anna Karenina’ that explores over six episodes the different kinds of love and all that goes with it.
