News & Interviews for The Cry: Season 1
It set a high benchmark for local drama, a tense, stylistically ambitious domestic noir, family relationships providing the perfect context for this haunting psychological thriller.
Mostly, we're captivated by Coleman, showing us Joanna's intense emotional pain with the most subtle of reaction shots, while everything Leslie does rings entirely true as well. It's a delicate, fascinating mosaic.
Coleman is a hugely captivating performer, oscillating between extreme vulnerability and strength, from grief to confusion, courage to cowardice.
On its own terms, the satisfyingly good-looking, pacy and well-played adaptation of Helen Fitzgerald's bestselling thriller succeeds and deserves to do well, not suffer by comparison.
If you're looking for something that's emotionally devastating and also riveting as a psychological mystery, you'll be happy that Sundance gave The Cry a chance for you to find it.
It's a beautifully shaped and rendered drama that evocatively explores the events that have brought Joanna to court in that red dress.
Certainly I can't think of many series where I've been so keen to find out what happens next, without really knowing what's happening now.
The Cry can drag a little at times, and - per the binge-watching model - the big twists and turns tend to come at the end of each episode. It is riveting television, stuck firmly between prestige and trash, like a Lifetime movie produced by HBO.
Coleman's Joanna is alternately grieving or glassy-eyed and then yet utterly poised as a woman finding her peace - or winning retribution. She is matched by Leslie, who mines humanity in a selfish man.
The first episode is a packed 55 minutes, which bodes well for the rest of the miniseries.
If you're able to stomach a nightmare scenario that not even the blazing Australian sunshine can brighten, there is a compelling commentary on the perils of parenting at the dark heart of The Cry.
