A seven episode miniseries created by Ryan Murphy and Ian Brennan covers the dreams, rejections, aspirations, failures, truths, lies and the cost of fame in Hollywood.
The sub-plots culminate into a climax that shows everyone’s journeys, emotionally, mentally and physically. While the picture that’s painted is very ideal, it speaks of how life could have been in the 50s.
Rock Hudson’s not so secret life, the politics present in movie studios, business fronts and wild parties are all connected in a web of the dual lives that everyone seems to lead.
David Corenswet, Darren Criss, Laura Harrier, Joe Mantello, Dylan McDermott, Jake Picking, Jeremy Pope, Holland Taylor, Samara Weaving and Patti LuPone show us shades and nuances that reveal a new layer in every episode.
Performances are exceptional across the ensemble cast, but the one that sticks in your memory is by Jim Parsons. He will send shivers up your spine with his character.
A riveting watch with production values that recreate the period perfectly, it gives you everything you could want in a tv series!
