Non-spoiler Mini Review after seeing the COMPLETE series
This is a 10-episode mini series about a fictional crime in North Carolina, USA. It is a remake of an Australian series.
A married man with 2 daughters (played by Ryan Phillippe) finds the body of a young boy, the son of his neighbor across the street (played by Natalie Martinez) while jogging. He becomes the main suspect for the Police (Detective Cornell is played by Juliette Lewis) and his community.
The series is made to build up tension in every episode. The spotlight of who is the killer changes constantly as more clues are coming to surface.
The direction of photography and direction create a haunted atmosphere, but this isn't a supernatural thriller. It's all about the human nature. Emotions, blame, jealousy...
The acting is OK. You get to see Juliette Lewis with her hair up and a Philip Marlow raincoat playing a relentless homicide detective who won't stop until the killer ends up behind bars.
10 episodes are too much (the Australian series had 6) but in my opinion if you have the time to invest, check it out.
