The Regime, (previously known as The Palace) is a new HBO mini-series that’s set in an invented Middle European autocracy.
Starring Kate Winslet, Martha Plimpton, Matthias Schoenaerts and Andrea Riseborough, the drama focuses on what’s going on within the walls of the palace as an authoritarian regime is in the midst of unravelling.
Clearly, the Chancellor/dictator isn’t the most decent and likeable of human beings. That doesn’t mean I’m more than a tad disappointed that according to IMDB Winslet will only appear in one episode. Especially since witnessing the power dynamic between her character and that played by Plimpton is why I’m most intrigued.
Also, hearing the words ‘I do like‘ currently has me woohooing every time. I’m telling myself that since this is an HBO production, I’ll eventually get over Winslet’s ‘cameo.’ Let’s see what the non-teaser trailer has to say.
Are you looking forward to spending some time, perhaps a year at the palace?
Guillaume Gallienne, Hugh Grant and Donald Sage Mackay also star.
The Regime Release Dates: 2024, HBO Max.
