Don Groves:
A blend of fact and fiction, Absolutely Modern follows Lord Steinway, the 'Method' art critic, as he makes a TV show, The End of Civilization, while he focusses on the famous Australian muse, Sunday Reed, and her ménage a trois with her husband John and young protégé Sidney Nolan. Don Groves, IF.
