Sam Neill joins Annette Bening to star in gripping new mystery, Apples Never Fall

It was filmed right here in Australia.

Sam Neill is taking the helm in Binge’s newest Aussie-filmed drama, Apples Never Fall.

Based on Liane Moriarty’s New York Times bestselling novel, Apples Never Fall follows the picture-perfect Delaney family – where nothing is quite as it seems.

At the head of the family sit tennis coaches Stan and Joy, who have sold their successful tennis academy and are ready to start what should be the golden years of their lives.

However, their plans to spend time with their four adult children are thrown in the air when a wounded young woman knocks on Joy and Stan’s door, bringing the excitement they’ve been missing.

But when Joy suddenly disappears, her children are forced to re-examine their parents’ so-called perfect marriage as their family’s darkest secrets begin to surface.
