The Screen Guide

Patrick White's BIG TOYS is a brittle comedy of sexual politics in which the biggest toy of all is uranium. Behind the domestic triangle of a Queen's Counsel, Ritchie Bousanquet, his promiscuous wife, Mag, and an idealist trade union leader, Terry Legge, is a sharp indictment, by a veteran critic of the vacant heart, of what he sees as the frivolous misuse in Australian corridors of power and responsibilities that comes with privilege.
