Default The Act

So Iím only a few episodes into this based on a true story limited series, buts itís very interesting. I was vaguely aware of the story thanks to something on YouTube last year, but it just seems insane played out in front of you. I keep finding myself feeling really bad for Gypsy, but then find myself conflicted about that.

Itís a tough show and it drags at moments. I didnít realize Patricia Arquette was the mom Dee Dee until the credits rolled at the end of the first episode. The acting all around is really great.


(This is on Hulu in The States and Crave in Canada)

You're the 1938th person to tell me to watch this. LOL Slightly exaggerated #.

1938 of them are not wrong! The girl who plays the wheelchair girl is a revelation. And they captured the real characters just perfectly. So very very sad and heartbreaking and fucked up
