The fashion for series is gaining momentum. If earlier the series was a primitive low-budget and semi-theatrical "soap opera" for housewives, now it is an intellectual movie, the creators of which bother about the plot, the costumes, and the interior/exterior. In modern serials, Hollywood stars of the first magnitude are increasingly playing with pleasure. In today’s film criticism column, we are talking about just such a series.

Play Back is an American drama mini-series from the American television channel HBO, which was released on screens on October 26 this year. The main roles in the 6-episode detective story, which is impossible to tear yourself away from watching, were played by the elegant Nicole Kidman and the conqueror of women’s hearts Hugh Grant.

The plot of the series is based on the novel by a modern American writer, a native of New York – Jean Hanff Korelitz. The title of the novel is You Should Have Known. It was written in 2014.

The action takes place in New York today. In the center of the plot is a rich and happy married couple – Grace and Jonathan Fraser. Grace is a successful psychoanalyst with an extensive private practice, Jonathan is a talented oncologist who has saved many lives. Their young son is studying at one of the best schools in New York, and Grace is on her parents’ committee. One day, a certain mysterious girl Elena appears in the composition of the parent committee with a baby in her arms. A few days later, she is found brutally murdered in her own workshop. At the same time, Jonathan disappears. Very soon it turns out that it is he who is suspected of murder, and Grace’s whole ideal life collapses in an instant. From series to series, the scriptwriters lead the viewer by the nose, forcing them to suspect the deeds of different heroes of the series. The end becomes an agonizing wait

The director of the detective drama "Play Back" was Danish Susanna Beer, who was probably remembered by the audience for her film work "Birdbox". The screenwriter of the series was David Edward Kelly – the same one who wrote the script for the Golden Globe and Emmy award winner – the series Little Big Lies. Actually, the styles of both series ("Play Back" and "Little Big Lies") are very similar. And Nicole Kidman again got the role of a woman deceived by her husband, whose usual measured way of life collapses in an instant. And I must say that Mrs. Kidman copes with her acting task perfectly well. It is as if she is the personification of a thoroughbred female, whose partner can have dozens of mistresses, but none of them will make him destroy the family with such a strong, stylish, intellectual,

We’re sure the costumers at Play Back had a lot of fun putting together the looks of Grace Fraser. Whether it’s a cocktail dress, a formal suit or a street-style bow, all of them framed by Kidman’s perfect red curls are elegant, concise and luxurious at the same time.

Harmonious and convincing as Jonathan Fraser and Hugh Grant. Without exaggeration, it is on his talented acting that the whole intrigue of the 6-episode detective is based. Yes, the 60-year-old actor is far from being the handsome man he used to be. Age takes its toll! But to what extent he is sustained in the frame! What a pained look! Could such a man brutally kill a woman? Or did he just become easy prey for the police, finding himself at the wrong time in the wrong place?

In addition to Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant, the cast of the series "Play Back" is reinforced by the famous Canadian actor Donald Sutherland in the role of Grace’s father. The role of Jonathan’s mistress and the main victim – Elena – went to the sexy Italian actress Matilda De Angelis.

Separately, I would like to say about one more “actor", who now and then appears in the frame of “Play Back” and is certainly a real decoration of the series – this is New York itself. Stunning views of the metropolis enhance the emotions and experiences of the characters, leaning on the viewer with millions of their lights, picturesque paths of parks, countless streets. The city seems to convince us that it will very soon absorb even such a spectacular story and make it get lost in its stone-technogenic jungle.

However, the story of "Play Back" is definitely not ordinary. It is beautiful and terrible at the same time, and, of course, instructive. After all, we so often in our lives live for years next to people with our own illusions about them, inventing the virtues of these people ourselves and carefully cultivating them in our fantasies, until one day they are crushingly destroyed by reality …
