PERFECT MARRIAGE. ALMOST PERFECT CRIME.
After living in France for a year, the Edwardses (Olivia Colman, David Thewlis) are in need of money and an unfortunate phone call to England becomes the start of a police investigation into a double homicide. The two stars are wonderful as the quaint couple who in 2014 were sentenced to life in prison for having murdered and buried Susan’s parents in their backyard, a crime that went undetected for 15 years. A darkly offbeat series where we’re drawn into Susan’s movie-crazed fantasies. But just as often as we’re entertained, we’re also distracted from real emotions.
