News & Interviews for The Plot Against America: Season 1
Roth's story becomes a meticulously detailed and gorgeously directed miniseries.
How Simon escalates the story, and just how close to home the series hits, is yet to be seen. But "The Plot Against America" is off to a promising beginning - if not in content, then in form.
But the series' feet are in the 1940s while its head is in the late 2010s. And as a result doesn't feel like it fully belongs anywhere.
[A] complex, character-driven drama that will linger in your head long after it's over.
It watches as prejudice and injustice spread insidiously like a disease, as the abnormal and obnoxious and unthinkable become commonplace.
"The Plot Against America" is indelible piece of work about how politics reaches into personal lives.
That an insidious version of initially smiling and "friendly" fascism, which wraps itself in homilies and "Americanism," can and will arise, given the right circumstances, is a truth, and a reality, that millions need to understand.
The Plot Against America speaks so directly to today's politics one would have to be particularly obtuse not to notice.
In the circumstances, it's no wonder that the regular anti-Trump nudges feel more like a distraction from a pretty good piece of speculative historical drama than a savage indictment of contemporary America.
What if a demagogic Republican interloper with no experience in politics or foreign affairs won the US presidency by spouting divisive rhetoric, vilifying the media, and always promising to put "America first"?
Struggles to captivate from the offset but it's worth the perseverance. As the story unfolds the disturbingly horrifying events of what could so easily come into fruition layers on a quiet intensity and leaving a thirst of wanting more.
