The Slap

The Slap is a novel by Australian author Christos Tsiolkas. The eight-part television series, The Slap, is an adaptation of the book. Its filming commenced in January 2011 and first screened on Australian television channel ABC1 from October 2011. At a barbecue in suburban Melbourne, a man slaps a three year old male child across the face. The child, Hugo, has been misbehaving without any intervention by his parents. The slapper is Harry, cousin of the barbecue host and adulterous businessman whose slightly older son, Rocco, is being threatened by Hugo. This event sends the other characters 'into a spiral, agonising and arguing over the notion that striking a child can ever be justified. Some believe a naughty boy should be taught some discipline, others maintain the police ought to be brought in to investigate a common assault with a range of positions in between. The is 22 track soundtrack features a range of theme music for the main characters in the series. It also features tracks from the likes of AIR Award winner Emma Louise, ARIA winners Angus & Julia Stone & one half of Big Scary, Tom Iansek's solo project Dads.
