This week you guys voted for a series on my Instagram poll, so my boyfriend and I decided to kick start our ‘Netflix & Chill’ posts with ‘The Sinner’. This series is in our top 3 favourites and is one of the most recent series we’ve watched.
Jessica Biel plays Cora Tannetti, an ordinary mum who lives an ordinary life. Until one unordinary day at the beach leads her to commit an outrageous act of violence, and she has no idea why. When an investigator decides to go the extra mile to look into what exactly lead Cora to this moment of madness, we discover that all is not as it seems.
This series has a gravitational pull from the jump, and so if you enjoy the first episode you will love every other that follows. The 8 episodes take us on a ride that at first is terrifying in its intensity and is simultaneously astonishing in its deliberate pacing, but its conclusion leaves you feeling grateful that it is all over.
As a whole we rate this series an 8 out of 10.
Series 2 started yesterday, and we cannot wait to watch it tonight. But for all those wanting to start series 1, you can find it on Netflix.
