The Apple TV + series Suspicion looks like our next big obsession.
Uma thurman plays Catherine Newman, a prominent American businesswoman, whose son Leo is kidnapped in New York by a gang of masked individuals. And, according to investigators, the NYPD has identified four people as their suspects – the only thing is they’re all British by coincidence.
But it seems there is more to this kidnapping than Catherine suggests. As she tells one of her advisers, “No one buys me as a mom. I’ll always be CEO first.”
“To play the game, there is no other option,” he replies. “First page of the playbook.”
She bites back, “Except I don’t remember the chapter about the kidnapping of your only child.”
So, is this a political strategy or something more sinister? The detectives themselves admit: “We cannot be certain whether this is a terrorist act, politically motivated or simple extortion.
