In years to come, the ABC’s Cleverman will be seen as a game-changer in Australian drama.
It reaches deep into Australia’s cultural history (and not just the
one that began a couple of hundred years ago) to produce a storyline
that delivers a superhero, an Australian genre-piece that’s up there
with the likes of True Blood and – if we choose to see it – a
searing indictment of how this country deals with people it doesn’t know
how to treat humanely.
