In the wake of the season two release of Stranger Things—and our subsequent one-day binge-a-thon of said season—the logical next step in our ongoing quest for spellbinding television was to watch the newest crime drama on Netflix: The Sinner. And boy, were we blown away.
The Sinner stars Jessica Biel as Cora, a young mother with a seemingly perfect life…until, out of nowhere, she stabs an innocent man to death in broad daylight while horrified onlookers watch. Yep, it’s dark. Just how we like it. The grisly incident is just the first crack in the facade hiding the darkness lurking in Cora’s past.
The captivating eight-episode series is based on Petra Hammesfahr’s 1999 novel of the same name and features Bill Pullman as Detective Harry Ambrose, an agent assigned to investigate why a woman enjoying such an idyllic life would commit such a heinous crime.
So clear your weekend plans and prepare for a brilliant and unexpected journey with Biel at its center. Trust us: You won’t want to miss this.
