The Undoing: Season 1 (2020)


Season 1
The Undoing

Critics Consensus

The Undoing is a beautifully shot mystery that benefits greatly from Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant's performances - if only its story was as strong as its star power.

Audience Reviews for The Undoing: Season 1

    I really wanted to like this but it is bad! So many plot holes that make no sense and seriously undo any character building. Skip
  • Jul 21, 2022
    The most predictable storyline, probably stolen from some cancelled B movie, was taken by HBO and made into a series. Embarrassingly, laughingly bad. I was foolish enough to believe there was a surprise or twist coming right until the end. I can never get those six hours back, but you shouldn't go anywhere near this train wreck.
  • Mar 21, 2022
    Hugh Grant is his best. Became a bit slow in the middle but great drama nonetheless!
  • Mar 05, 2022
    Too predictable. I agree, "You Should Have Known". Unless you've nothing to do and/or are a die-hard Nicole fan, you can keep this waiting in your watchlist.

    I thought this was brilliant. Superbly acted and utterly gripping. Hugh Grant outstanding.
  • Jan 03, 2022
    I liked it a lot. It was one of the reasons I finally subscribed to HBO because I saw the first episode when it was offered for free and I wanted to watch the rest of the series. It wasn't perfect and I wasn't happy with the final episode. This was partly because although putting Grace in the witness stand wrapped up the case for the prosecution, it is hard to believe that such a good attorney would let her take the stand. As a non-lawyer, even I know that whatever anyone on the defense can find out about the case, so can the prosecution, in this case the information supplied by Jonathan's estranged mother. I really liked Donald Sutherland's portrayal of Franklin. It was perfect. He wanted to be supportive of his daughter at the same time as he was critical of her support of Jonathan.

    I love limited series
  • Nov 02, 2021
    Good performances but writing was lazy. There have to be clues dropped along the way that reveal a character's true nature, not just blow up a final episode that skipped over the character erosion we should have been seeing all along to arrive at a shocking, but understandable, conclusion. And what's with Nicole Kidman's freakish alien lips? Very distracting.
  • Sep 13, 2021
    The whole point of a movie is for us to suspend our disbelief and get lost in the story. Unfortunately, in this case, I found it impossible to do that. Every time I started to get absorbed into the story, something absurd would jerk me back to reality, forcing me to say out loud, "really"? The acting is ok, but the script is terrible and unbelievable in nearly every scene. Neither the characters nor the story hold up. And there were a number of very bad, almost amateurish cuts, that reveal just how rushed and unprofessional this project was. After so many surgical procedures, I find Nicole Kidman's face hideous and distorted to the point of distraction. I feel sorry for her that she felt compelled to make herself look like an alien from another planet. What a disaster! Essentially, it's a 2 hour movie stretched out into 5 hours. I managed to watch the whole thing, just barely. I cannot recommend that anyone else do the same.

    Are we blindhed by truth in front of us? Is the answears we seek to easy to get? Do we accept we answears we are given? Ask yourself that while watching this series. The serie offers great casting, performance, writting and mystery. It's a story that hold a lot of tention in the air through the hole season.
