The Sinner is a new TV series coming to USA this summer. It stars Jessica Biel as a wife and mom who goes haywire one day and commits a very public act of violence.
The plot twist with The Sinner isn’t the who but the why. She doesn’t know why she did it. The police struggle to figure it out as well. Bill Pullman is the investigator on the case.
Here’s the film synopsis: “A crime thriller about a young mother (Biel) who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the “who” or the “what” — but the “why” — as an investigator (Pullman) finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman’s buried motive. Together they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.”
The series is based on a book by Petra Hammesfahr. Biel is producing the series. It sounds like it might be interesting summer viewing. What do you think?
One response to “Watch This: Trailer for The Sinner”
Jessica Biel—a terrific actor! I love the sort of movie that asks, (and answers, I hope!) the question ‘Why?” It’s refreshing in this era of ‘How’ and ‘Who’ movies, as in “How did it happen?”, and “Who dunnit?” Thanks, Virginia. I love your reviews!
