Based on Hannie Rayson's award-winning play, Hotel Sorrento explores the delicate undercurrent of memories and secrets during a long-overdue family reunion in the sleepy Australian seaside town of Sorrento, where shadows of the past catch up with three decidedly different sisters. A successful writer with a book about to be published and residing in the cultural melting-pot of London, Meg (Caroline Goodall, Schindler's List) carries with her a stifling spirit and mystery which unsettles her other siblings: Pippa (Tara Morice, Strictly Ballroom) a fast-talking businesswoman visiting from New York and reserved single mother Hilary (Caroline Gillmer, Evil Angels), who looks after their dad Wal (AFI Award winner Ray Barrett), whilst raising her teenage son Troy (Ben Thomas, Round The Twist). Catching up on all things family, discussing the great cultural divide and matters much closer to home, the three sisters soon uncover a truth that will not only turn their lives around, but shake the well-established foundations of 'Hotel Sorrento' forever. Also featuring Oscar® nominee Joan Plowright (Enchanted April), John Hargreaves (Don's Party), Nicholas Bell (Shine) and directed by internationally acclaimed filmmaker Richard Franklin (Brilliant Lies), Hotel Sorrento is an absorbing story of a family united by love and torn apart by betrayal.
