ABC Australia’s Australian Story put together a two-part special about “Lion” screenwriter Luke Davies. The series is produced by Quentin McDermott and Greg Hassall and the episodes dedicated to Davies feature interviews with family, friends and peers, including interview segments by Dev. The first episode aired last week in Australia and the second and final part will air tomorrow. Australian fans are able to (re)watch the first episode on the ABC iview player. We have added the promotional images in our gallery and the previews for both episodes in our video archive.
Luke Davies: Candy Man features candid interviews with Luke’s parents and former partners as well as friends and collaborators, including actors Dev Patel (Lion), Joel Edgerton, Jacki Weaver and Alex O’Loughlin, Candy director Neil Armfield, Candy and Lion producer Emile Sherman and director David Michod. Together they tell a remarkable story of redemption; of a man whose vision of the world and his own place in it is suffused with poetry but who achieved success only after emerging from the depths of addiction and despair.
