, New 14-part Hulu series Dopesick is set at the epicentre of America’s struggle with opioid addiction.
Starring Michael Keaton, Kaitlyn Dever, Will Poulter, Rosario Dawson and Peter Skarsgaard; the story goes from the boardrooms of Purdue Pharma, to a distressed Virginia mining community and the hallways of the Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
The topic of Dopesick is undoubtedly more than timely. The cast is fantastic and I rather this well edited trailer; the kind with just the right type of music. Nevertheless, ultimately, in this case it’s really the inclusion of Poulter, Dawson, Sarsgaard and Keaton that will be the strongest drivers for wether I’ll end up watching
I’m sure 2020 has something to do with it, but, the movies and shows I’m drawn to more strongly these days aren’t necessarily the ones that focus primarily on the capacity of the human for actions/decisions that are devoid of empathy. Especially when it comes to stories based on very real events.
Even with the above said, my curiosity and the right mood could hit at anytime – and before you know it, I’m deep into this story dark, important story.
