There’s all the vibes of a dark, intriguing new Netflix series here in the realm of Gone Girl, The Girl on the Train and The Woman in the Window (2020), and in the first instance I mean the books, so if you like those, then I’m more than sure this will be up your street!
Behind Her Eyes is based on the best-selling by Sarah Pinborough and written by Steve Lightfoot and Angela LaManna for this upcoming 6-episode series, that streams from 17th February on the streaming platform. Directed by Erik Richter Strand, it stars Simona Brown, Eve Hewson, Tom Bateman, and Robert Aramayo, and it’s good to see this as a UK series as well, which makes a nice change from the usual American-style in this genre. Just before your trailer, here’s a little official insight:
Louise, a single mother finds comfort and a new lease of life through an affair with her psychiatrist boss, David. Her life is turned upside down when she befriends his wife but later finds herself in a web of secrets and lies where nothing is what it seems.
