Emmy-winner® Guy Pearce (Memento, Iron Man 3) returns as down-on-his-luck private detective Jack Irish in this cinematic Australian noir series. Even as Jack attempts to rebuild his life, his tragic past resurfaces and pulls him into the fatal depths of Melbourne’s criminal underworld. 

When a man he’s been tasked to find turns up dead from a drug overdose, Jack thinks his job is done. But his client compels him to continue working on the case, revealing a personal stake that Jack can’t ignore. As he digs deeper, Jack uncovers a conspiracy involving smuggling, police corruption, and blackmail that could compromise someone close to his heart.

Based on the novel Dead Point by award-winning writer Peter Temple, this satisfyingly complex mystery offers an original take on the genre, with Pearce delivering a “funny, sexy performance as a flawed hero whose vulnerabilities are his strongest suits” (The Washington Post). The feature-length drama also stars Barry Humphries (Dame Edna Everage) as a crusading judge and Marta Dusseldorp (BlackJack) as Jack’s journalist paramour.
