Surely one of the most anticipated series for 2017 is the follow-up to Jane Campion’s Top Of The Lake – the Kiwi series that really cast an unsettling and woozy spell over us all in 2013. Ahead of its premiere later in the year, the BBC has released the trailer for the Emmy and Golden Globe-nominated drama. It’ll make its debut at the Cannes Film Festival later this month. Take a look…
The highly-anticipated series will see Elisabeth Moss (who is currently being sensational in The Handmaid’s Tale) reprise her Golden Globe-winning role as Detective Robin Griffin. She will be joined by Nicole Kidman (who looks VERY different) and Gwendoline Christie.
Also joining the cast are David Dencik, Alice Englert and Ewen Leslie.
Top of the Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Griffin recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But her search to discover “China Girl’s” identity will take her into the city’s darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
