“If someone threatens your child, you do anything to protect them…”
Pieces of Her premiered on March 4th 2022 on Netflix with eight episodes available to stream now. The mystery-thriller series stars Toni Collette, Bella Heathcote, Omari Hardwick and Jacob Scipio. Each episode runs for approximately 45-55 minutes.
After an attack in a small town, a mother desperately tries to protect her daughter against dangerous threats as secrets surrounding her own dark past are revealed.
Here is the trailer:
Pieces of Her hooks its audience with a compelling mystery and plenty of twists and reveals to keep you coming back for more, but is it worthy of your next watch? Let’s find out…
Toni Collette is as brilliant as ever!
Wow, she was so good in this! She really manages to fully embrace whatever role she is given and I am always drawn in that much more because of her performances. I thought she was fantastic in this series and she actually elevated it a lot when the plot went down the rabbit hole a few times.
An intriguing mystery.
I thought the mystery at the core of the series was a good one and I actually really liked that this show revealed a lot about this mother-daughter relationship, giving it a more emotional tone which worked in the show’s favor. Although some of the reveals were predictable, there were a lot that I didn’t see coming and I thought that this show was very easy to binge-watch.
Wishy-washy female lead.
I didn’t mind the character of Andy but she started to make some really dumb decisions as the show continued. This was frustrating at times because I want to really care about the characters to remain invested and I had a hard time connecting to her. I don’t think the performance was bad and there were some redeeming moments here and there, but I wanted a lot more from her as a character.
I also thought that the first half of the series was a lot stronger than the second half. Things started to lose steam after a while and we went off on several tangents before we got to the conclusion. That being said, I still think there was enough happening to keep me entertained.
So am I in or out?
This show really kept me on the edge of my seat. With each new episode, I needed to know more! If you enjoy mystery thrillers, you will feel right at home with this one.
