A slow burn murder mystery, with a shocking twist that actually makes sense. It’s a rare feat. Helmed by the great Kate Winslet, it’s one of the best detective series ever. Very realistic and authentic characters. You can see the lines on everyone’s faces, no touch ups. Kate’s acting is phenomenal. Absolute masterpiece!
It’s interesting to see the comparison between India’s lower caste (who works lowly positions as servants) to rooster coops. After watching the movie, viewers will understand how hard it is to break the caste system.
The anti hero narrative is very engaging that I don’t realize 125 minutes has passed. As an Indonesian, I noticed some similarities with my country re the conducts of the masters i.e bribing politicians & police, oppressing the poor, getting rich quick through politics/crime, attitudes to servants etc. I guess that’s just how emerging/developing countries work. Survival of the fittest.
The movie delves in issues of elderly abuse and guardianship. Pike masterfully played a very despicable character. She managed to hook the viewers from start to finish. I was rooting for the downfall of this anti hero (villain?) character throughout. I must say, it’s a very entertaining movie.
