Toni Collette stars in Wanderlust, a searingly insightful and funny exploration of the relationships of a multi-generational family. Toni is joined by Steven Mackintosh (A Song For Jenny, Stan Lee’s Lucky Man, The Halcyon), Zawe Ashton (Fresh Meat, Not Safe For Work, Case Histories) and Royce Pierreson (Line Of Duty, Our Girl, Murdered By My Boyfriend) in the six-part drama. Commissioned by BBC One and a co-production with Netflix, the series will premiere in the UK on BBC One and globally outside of the UK on Netflix. Wanderlust is the first television series scripted by award-winning playwright Nick Payne (Constellations, The Sense Of an Ending, If There Is I Haven’t Found It Yet) and is directed by Luke Snellin (The A Word, Our Girl, My Mad Fat Diary). Made by Drama Republic (Doctor Foster, King Charles III, The Honourable Woman), it looks at how we build and maintain happy relationships and asks whether lifelong monogamy is possible – or even desirable. Wanderlust follows Joy Richards (Toni Collette) a therapist trying to find a way to keep her spark with her husband alive after a cycling accident causes them to reassess their relationship. As we meet her family, friends, neighbours and clients, remarkable yet relatable stories of love, lust and forbidden desire emerge. Toni Collette says: “I am honoured and thrilled to work with Nick Payne’s wonderful words on Wanderlust. It is an authentic and revolutionary story about relationships, sex, love and all the things we really care about. I could not be more excited.” Nick Payne says: “I’m over the moon to be working with Drama Republic, the BBC and Netflix. And the cast – what a galaxy of talent. Toni Collette is an astronomically adept performer, and someone I’ve long admired.”

Congratulations to Toni Collette for receiving an Australian Film Institute AACTA Award nomination as Best Lead Actress in a Television Drama for “Blue Murder: Killer Cop”. The 7 mini-series has received a total 10 nominations, including Best Telefeature or Mini Series, Best Lead Actor (Richard Roxburgh), Best Guest Or Supporting Actor (Matt Nable), Best Guest Or Supporting Actress (Emma Booth), Cinematography, Editing, Production Design, Costume Design and Original Music Score. In the film section, “Jasper Jones” has fared equally well with 6 nominations, for Best Film, Best Supporting Actor (Hugo Weaving), Adapted Screenplay, Sound, Production Design and Costume Design. Toni would have been a deserving nominee for Best Supporting Actress as well, nevertheless it’s great to see her two Australian productions of 2017 being presented so well. The 7th AACTA Awards are being handed out on December 07, 2017.

It’s very quiet right now in Collette-land, which is more than fine after all the film we’ve seen released this year – and some upcoming buzz once “Please Stand By” premieres at the festival circuit later this month. In the meantime, here are scans from the October issue of the Australian Muse Magazine. Enjoy.

“Unlocked” has been released on Blu-Ray in the United Kingdom on Monday and I was thrilled to finally watch it. I was expecting something bad after the film has been in the shelf for over 3 years (as you can clearly see on Toni’s hair, growing back after shooting “Miss You Already” in 2015). Luckily, the film’s quality was not the reason for its delay – at least not in my book. It’s a good entertaining thriller, nothing new to say the least, but still very well done and a good ride. I was looking forward to an ensemble piece, given the talents of John Malkovich, Toni Collette, Michael Douglas and Orlando Bloom involved, but it really is a one-woman show with Noomi Rapace commanding the screen – and every single scene. It’s another powerful leading role. The only real disappointment about the British Blu-Ray is that it includes absolutely no special features, zero. It would have been nice to go behind the scenes and learn more about the making of the film. Make sure to grab your copy or catch it in an American theater for its US release starting tomorrow. Screencaptures from the Blu-Ray have been added to the photo gallery – be advised that they contain spoilers.
