It is four years since director Jane Campion and Elisabeth Moss kept viewers on the edge of their seats with the disturbing mystery series Top Of The Lake. And now more is on its way. The BBC today released the trailer for BBC Two and See-Saw Films’ next instalment of the Emmy and Golden Globe nominated Top Of The Lake, which will premiere at Cannes Film Festival later this month.
The highly anticipated series will see Elisabeth Moss (Mad Men) reprise her Golden Globe winning role as Detective Robin Griffin. She will be joined by Nicole Kidman and Gwendoline Christie (Game Of Thrones, Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Wizards vs Aliens).
Also joining the cast are David Dencik (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy, The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo), Alice Englert (Beautiful Creatures, Jonathan Strange And Mr Norrell) and Ewen Leslie (The Daughter).
Top of the Lake: China Girl is a crime mystery story that finds Detective Robin Griffin recently returned to Sydney and trying to rebuild her life. When the body of an Asian girl washes up on Bondi Beach, there appears little hope of finding the killer, until Robin realises “China Girl” didn’t die alone. Robin looks to the investigation to restore herself, but her problems are personal. Haunted by a daughter given up at birth, Robin desperately wants to find her, yet dreads revealing the truth of her conception. But her search to discover “China Girl’s” identity will take her into the city’s darkest recesses and closer than she could have imagined to the secrets of her own heart.
Top of the Lake: China Girl will broadcast later this year on BBC Two and is due on Sundance TV in the States come September.
