In Metro no. 191, identity is brought to the fore. The collision of personal and political is prominently explored in the ABC adaptation of Christos Tsiolkas' Barracuda, Korean-American feature Spa Night and Sundance Grand Jury Prize-winning documentary Sonita. The marginalisation of women is captured in Hotel Coolgardie and Wednesday, May 9, while the undervaluing of old age is critiqued in Winter at Westbeth. The ties between place and self are chronicled in Australian satire Down Under, moody series The Kettering Incident, and Chinese films Tharlo and Life After Life. Sex and depictions of it are investigated in Embedded and local classic Alvin Purple, while murky ethics are brought to light by The Family and Tickled. Truth, beauty and violence are unravelled in the films of Korean stylist Park Chan-wook, and horror is interrogated in Killing Ground, Red Billabong and The Wailing. Best encapsulating the theme of identity is recent Australian success Girl Asleep - the issue's cover story - whose prosperous journey from page to stage to screen aligns with its central character's growing confidence and coming of age.
