*Warning: Spoilers ahead*
As a true admirer of the thriller genre, I was instantly intrigued when I saw the trailer for the new Apple TV+ series, Shining Girls, based on the best-selling novel by Lauren Beukes. Elisabeth Moss (who you may know from The Handmaid's Tale) plays a reserved young woman named Kirby Mazrachi. As a newspaper archivist for the Chicago Sun-Times, she soon finds herself trying to pick up the pieces of her life after a brutal attack leaves her questioning reality.
Kirby learns that another woman has fallen victim to her attacker. Determined to catch the culprit before he strikes again, she teams up with a veteran journalist named Dan Velazquez (Wagner Moura). Together, they try to stop the assailant while Kirby grapples with her troubling past.
But, is this show worth the watch? Keep scrolling to read my honest review of Shining Girls.
