*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
It's impossible to ignore the influx of true crime shows that have been populating our social media feeds lately. Titles like Inventing Anna, The Tinder Swindler, Bad Vegan and The Girl From Plainville have made countless headlines and continue to pique our morbid curiosity. And now, thanks to Hulu (and HBO Max), we know that this trend is far from over, because yet another fascinating true story is getting the Hollywood treatment.
Allow us to introduce Hulu's five-part drama, Candy, which drops today. Jessica Biel stars as a suburbanite mom in this fictionalized retelling of the true story, where Candy Montgomery, a beloved housewife, rocked a Texas small town after brutally killing Betty Gore, one of her closest friends, in 1980. Interestingly enough, HBO Max will soon follow suit with a version of their own, starring Elizabeth Olsen. But for now, all eyes are on Biel, who clearly tapped into her inner Beverly Sutphin for this role. Arguably one of her best performances yet, Biel shines as the charming, duplicitous character who can win anyone over with her white-picket-fence smile.
