Gracepoint: Season 1 - Rotten Tomatoes

Gracepoint: Season 1 (2014)



Critic Consensus: While it may suffer in comparison to its British predecessor Broadchurch, Gracepoint brings an engrossing, sophisticated, and stylish crime drama to network television with Anna Gunn as a commanding lead.

Tv Season Info

This crime drama is an Americanized version of the British series "Broadchurch," both from creator Chris Chibnall. The show follows detectives Emmett Carver (David Tennant, who also played the same role in "Broadchurch," although the character was named Alec Hardy) and Ellie Miller (Anna Gunn) as they investigate the murder of a young boy in a small, tight-knit coastal community. The seemingly idyllic town is shocked by the tragedy, but the citizens of Gracepoint soon become suspicious of each other as they realize the killer is likely one of their own. The cast also features Jacki Weaver as Susan Wright; Nick Nolte as Jack Reinhold; and Michael Peña as Mark Solano.

A grim, gray slog, absent pleasure.

By this point, I'm ready to turn off Gracepoint entirely and forever... But then I remember Nick Nolte is in this show....So I persevere, despite now knowing this show may truly kill me.

It turns out that knowing all the sides of a story doesn't necessarily improve it. You can have all the pieces at your fingertips -- the puzzle may still disappoint.

Gracepoint tells a well-paced, multilayered story. At the end of each episode, you want to see what will happen in the next one.

Go watch the original and skip this waste of time, even though it will mean missing a bizarre performance from Nick Nolte.

October 1, 2014 | Full Review…

Gracepoint, a remake of the spectacular 2013 British drama Broadchurch, is my biggest disappointment of the year precisely because someone got it in their head that Americans can't handle subtlety and nuance.
