Quite the lineup of A-list film talent, eh?

And the series delivers!

A physically abusing husband falls to his death from the top of a long flight of steps while kicking his fallen wife in front of her horrified friends. The series covers what led to this outcome. This is a savage exploration of what life is like inside a wealthy enclave--- but it does not provide easy answers. I'd put it up there with the finest of streaming series of all time. Streep shows that she is our finest actress, yet again.

she does it again and delivers a pitch perfect performance as the bereaved passive aggressive mom out to get justice (in her eyes) done.

Glad you enjoyed it.

Not so sure Streep's character was good? Nor that the men were, posted on May 7, 2022 at 14:45:07

negatively painted--- with the exception, of course, of Skarsgard's character. I thought the women were multi-dimensional--- and it is unusual to have stories told from a women's standpoint--- I mean, after a century of male dominance in the field.
Anyhow, I enjoyed seeing an ensemble of such talented actresses go at it.

 

Agree. That was a good series! NT, posted on May 9, 2022 at 11:27:59
