DESCRIPTION:
(from Sundance's press release, March 2016) On the heels of the announcement that See Saw Films will be producing a second season of "Top of the Lake" in association with SundanceTV, the network is offering viewers a chance to catch-up on season one through its On-Demand services, including the SundanceTV app and website (www.sundance.tv), now through May 6. Hailing from Oscar(R) winning director Jane Campion (The Piano, Portrait of a Lady), the first installment of the series (which originally aired on the network in March 2013) won the 2013 Emmy(R) for Outstanding Cinematography for a Miniseries or Movie, as well as the 2014 Golden Globe(R) for Best Performance by an Actress in a Mini-Series or a Motion Picture Made for Television for Elisabeth Moss. "Top of the Lake" also received recognition at the 2014 BAFTAs, Screen Actors Guild Awards, Critics Choice Television Awards, and PGA Awards, among many others. Set in the remote mountains of New Zealand, season one of "Top of the Lake" is a powerful and haunting mystery that centers on the disappearance of a 12-year-old named Tui who is five months pregnant. In this classic mythic struggle, investigative detective Robin Griffin (Moss) must lose herself in order to find the missing girl. During the investigation, she collides with Matt Mitcham (Peter Mullan), Tui's father, a local drug lord, and G.J. (Holly Hunter, who won a Best Actress Oscar for her performance in Campion's The Piano), a guru at a local women's camp. As the case unfolds, in a paradise where honest work is hard to find, Robin will find that her limits are tested, sending her on a journey of self-discovery. The series also stars AFI Award(R) winning actor David Wenham (The Lord of the Rings, Australia) and Lucy Lawless ("Xena: Warrior Princess," "Battlestar Galactica," "Spartacus: Vengeance"), who has a cameo role as Caroline, the estranged wife of Bob, a real estate agent who crosses drug lord Matt Mitchum.
