“Top of the Lake: China Girl” stars Golden Globe® winner Elisabeth Moss and Academy Award® and Golden Globe® winner Nicole Kidman. The series was critically acclaimed during its world premiere at the 2017 Cannes Film Festival.
In “Top of the Lake: China Girl” we see Detective Robin Griffin (Moss) recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild a life that includes a daughter given up for adoption at birth. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears to be little hope of finding the killer – until Robin realizes that “China Girl” didn’t die alone.
Robin’s search to discover the identity of “China Girl” will take her into the darkest recesses of Sydney and the secrets of her own heart. The series is directed by Oscar® winner Jane Campion of New Zealand (SWEETIE,THE PIANO, BRIGHT STAR).
Series mega-stars Elisabeth Moss and Nicole Kidman were present at the TCA’s SundanceTV panel held at the Beverly Hilton on Saturday, July 29th, 2017. Joining them were co-stars Gwendoline Christie and Alice Englert, Jane Campion’s daughter. Nicole Kidman (Julia) plays the adoptive mother of Alice Englert (Mary), the child Elisabeth Moss (Robin) gave up at birth.
But Robin’s main problem to solve may concern her role as Mary’s mother. “The personal always kind of lines up with the political” in this edgy series!
