The Screen Guide

This is the story of Palm Island, the tropical paradise where one morning Cameron Doomadgee swore at a policeman and forty-five minutes later lay dead in a watch house cell. This is also the story of that policeman, the tall enigmatic Christopher Hurley who chose to work in some of the toughest and wildest places in Australia and the struggle to bring him to trial. THE TALL MAN is a story in luminous detail of two worlds clashing - and a haunting moral puzzle that no viewer will forget.
