A review of Apple TV+ crime series Suspicion says that star Uma Thurman is "brutally underused" in the show.
The new Apple TV+ show, set to air on February 4, follows the kidnapping of the son of a high-profile American businesswoman (Thurman) and four "seemingly ordinary British citizens" who come under suspicion for being in the hotel on the night of the incident. From Apple:
However, a new review of the upcoming show from Variety does not mince words:
The review says that while Thurman is close to the center of the action the show too often "seems to be purposefully obscuring what's going on — and doing so by simply hiding a potent asset" and that the reviewer "simply lost the patience waiting for the show to allow Thurman, a gifted performer who too rarely gets the chance to let loose these days, to do much of anything."
Not the first reviewer to notice, a now unpublished Radio Times review described Thurman as "suspiciously absent" from the show.
