Critical Condition: The Hunting

The Hunting | SoHo, 8.30 Monday

☆☆☆☆ “The new SBS drama The Hunting achieves something that’s sadly rare right across scripted Australian television: it treats teenagers as complex and complete characters, capable of the best and worst their lives allow for … Situated at the intersection of sexuality and digital privacy, The Hunting isn’t afraid to depict a generation maturing online … Smartly structured and made with exemplary care.” — Sydney Morning Herald.

☆☆☆☆ “There’s no way around it: The Hunting is an infuriating show to watch. But watch it you must. Not infuriating because it’s bad TV — it’s actually one of the best Australian productions in recent years. It’s infuriating because if The Hunting is a mirror to what’s happening in our schools, and the sexts being shared, uploaded and commented on by our kids.” —

☆☆☆☆ “This very compelling, tense and prickly drama builds an electric kind of energy from a powder-keg scenario which leads to an array of dramatic consequences that fizz with moral and logical conundrums … All the cast contribute realistic and high-impact performances buoyed by a script that considers guilt and responsibility largely in terms of societal influences rather than ‘bad’ people doing ‘bad’ things.” — The Guardian.

☆☆☆☆ The Hunting is an extremely rare event in Australian television history. The power and topicality of the story are more than matched by the quality of the writing and craft of the production. It’s as hot and urgent as it is considered … The acting in The Hunting is vivid and harrowingly truthful.” — ScreenHub.

☆☆☆☆ “Against the bleak, hard core world of Euphoria, The Hunting is a relatively optimistic community where the kids will hopefully rise above their humiliation and lessons are hard learned. This is another noble work from SBS that is lifted by a fine cast that may well lead to conversations you didn’t want to have.” — TV Tonight.
