Pollasumera


In 1824 the British penal colony of Van Diemen's Land is little more than a living hell. Chained to a wall in the darkness of a cell under Hobart Gaol, Pearce is visited by Father Connolly, the parish priest of the fledgling colony and a fellow Irishman. The Last Confession Of Alexander Pearce will draw a visceral and compelling picture of a hell on earth and tell how one man endured the unimaginable by doing the unthinkable.

Film reviews: 
* * * * Empire Magazine * * * * Sunday Times Michael James Rowland generates a perpetual tension throughout this extraordinary tale of woe, the superb script by Rowland and Nial Fulton takes an appropriately apocalyptic approach to the convict experience. Beautifully shot and exceptionally well acted. This is compelling stuff.'  Iain McKay, Sunday Times (UK)  ‘If there are those who need to know what television can be at it's best, let them look no further than this...a taut psychological thriller with stunning performance...this has raised the bar for television in 2009...don't miss it.' Ben O'Shea, West Australian 'An unmitigated triumph. The performances - McMenamin as Pearce, Dunbar as the man who hears his confession and a supporting <br /> cast including Don Hany, Dan Wyllie and Chris Haywood are flawless.' <br /> Sacha Molitorisz, The Age <br /> <br /> 'A gritty and haunting morality tale, a masterfully sketched portrait of religious faith, human guilt and what divides men from <br /> beasts.'  <br /> Simon De Bruyn, Inside Film Magazine <br /> <br /> 'A stellar cast...a compelling and disturbing drama' <br /> Helen Ganska, Sunday Times <br /> <br /> 'A brilliant piece of film-making on an exceptional and important story.'  <br /> Australian Teachers of Media <br /> <br /> ‘The Last Confession of Alexander Pearce was probably the most compelling piece of work on BBC Northern Ireland in several <br /> years...fantastically gripping historical tale of suffering...better than a lot of big screen movies.'   <br /> Andrew Johnston, Newsletter (Northern Ireland)  <br /> <br /> 'A confronting, exhilarating film that defies easy categorisation.' <br /> Greg Hassall, Sydney Morning Herald <br /> <br /> 'An intensely moving and compassionate drama.' <br /> John Hagan, Metro Magazine <br /> <br /> 'A brilliant piece of film-making on an exceptional and important story.' <br /> Australian Teachers of Media <br /> <br /> 'The BBC could do worse than look here for inspiration...one of those incredible stories from Australian history... a beautiful <br /> production...The Tassie landscape has never looked so glorious or intimidating. A great script loaded with fierce energy, handled <br /> expertly by a surprising cast' Melinda Houston, Sunday Age <br /> <br /> 'A terrific, if harrowing, start to the new season's viewing.' <br /> The Australian <br /> <br /> ‘A fabulously gruesome tale of human savagery at the end of the world.'  <br /> James Joyce, Newcastle Herald  <br /> <br /> ‘Top Pick - It's the stuff of which myths are made...a beautiful production.' <br /> Melinda Houston, Sunday Age <br />
