The Undoing series airs on HBO GO and HBO in six episodes, and tells the story of a mystery that includes a sadistic and inhumane murder, until it is recorded as being carried out by someone with a grudge, a very high anger.
The series stars Nicole Kidman (Grace), Jonathan Fraser (Hugh Grant), Donald Sutherland (Franklin Renner) and Matilda De Angelis (Elena Alves).
The trailer is as follows:
Through the first 3 episodes of The Undoing, viewers are brought in to follow the storyline with past disclosures through dialogue and scenes of the present. The storytelling makes the audience brought guessing the mystery arising from the new findings that appear throughout the storyline. The audience was taken to the thought that Jonathan Fraser could be innocent of murder, but there were others who were able to do so, because there were so many motives that could make Matilda the target of murder because of her unusual nature and practices.
With a quick scene, the audience is made unable to think other than to look for these possibilities. Some suspect it could have been Grace, Franklin, a hit man and others. A series of theories emerged in support of each of these allegations, so that the next episode’s screening became something to look forward to.
When finally the last episode comes up with the real truth, the viewer seems to be made to look at himself and question, how complicated is the storyline, isn’t the actual murder simple, and for 5 episodes has been brought emotions and feelings for the sake of an ego to successfully solve his murder mystery and the theory is the correct compared to other mystery solving theories.
The audience is also brought into a special feeling of mystery circle that envelops elite socialites, in contrast to ordinary people, through body language, special speech that can only be understood and done by the elite socialites, so that the realm of thought of the audience is brought in, to reveal their world. Something that is very liked by the audience is to find out / peek at the lives of other socialites or compare with the socialite life that she has experienced, if she happens to have been among the elite socialites.
The series presents a brilliant storyline and is actually very simple.
At the time the truth was open and it turned out that Jonathan was the killer. The audience is brought to smile and if dare to question themselves. Why can it be easily carried over for several episodes into the storyline that turns out to give this misleading view, when all this time the killer is actually in sight.
The author of the series, David E. Kelley, has been able to provide quality and satisfying entertainment for audiences who love mystery. The Undoing is one of the masterpieces that will be the subject of discussion for some time to come.
