Based on the international bestselling novel of the same name, The Sinner follows a young mother (Jessica Biel) who, when overcome by an inexplicable fit of rage, commits a startling act of violence and to her horror has no idea why. The event launches an inverted and utterly surprising crime thriller whose driving force is not the “who” or the “what” – but the “why.” An investigator (Bill Pullman) finds himself obsessed with uncovering the woman’s buried motive. Together, they travel a harrowing journey into the depths of her psyche and the violent secrets hidden in her past.
The eight-episode crime thriller premieres Monday, August 21 at 10 p.m. ET/PT on Showcase in Canada. To watch the trailer, please click here.
I love the trailer — I think Jessica Biel and Bill Pullman are fantastic in it and I can just imagine how masterfully they’ll bring this grip lit psychological thriller to life. As a fan of mysteries, I’m also intrigued by the whydunnit element of the story and the comparison of the author on Goodreads to ‘Germany’s Patricia Highsmith.’
