When They See Us
WOW! Highly, highly recommend this!
Based on the wrongful conviction of the Central Park 5, this is poignant and must see Tv.
Firstly the young actors are quite simply, incredible. The authenticity they bring to these roles is remarkable. Jharrel Jerome, who plays Corey, is the standout amongst the standouts. I’m a little speechless from his performance. Genuinely incredible.
Combined with wonderful cinematography, a beautiful, and at times, haunting soundtrack, and a really well written script. Ava DuVernay has put together a brilliant 4 episode mini series. There is close to no rock unturned here, delving into all aspects of the case and its horrendous effects. This is her best work so far, and it’s near on perfect.
Go watch it!!
