Guy Pearce is Jack Irish, the brooding antihero of Australian writer Peter Temple’s award-winning novels. His wife’s brutal murder results in Jack reinventing himself as a full-time alcoholic and part-time private investigator. Then, an old client leaves Jack several frantic voicemails before he dies. The Police call it suicide, but the PI returns to the world that took everything away from him—to look into the conflicting facts. Bad Debts and Black Tide show Pearce imbuing Jack with world-weary gruffness and a dash of dark humor. As much as he tries to break away, the underworld is where he thrives—and the only place he can find redemption. Contains strong language, violence, graphic images, nudity, and sexual situations.
