Expats (Amazon Prime) - D: Lulu Wang S: Nicole Kidman - Premieres 1/26/2024



The six-part limited series is Based on the 2016 novel The Expatriates by Janice Y. K. Lee.

Set against the vibrant and tumultuous tapestry of 2014 Hong Kong, Expats centers on three American women—Margaret (Nicole Kidman), Hilary (Sarayu Blue), and Mercy (Ji-young Yoo)—whose lives intersect after a sudden family tragedy. The series interrogates privilege and explores what happens when the line between victimhood and culpability becomes blurred. Brian Tee, who plays Margaret’s husband Clarke, and Jack Huston, who plays Hilary’s husband David, also star in the series.

This just looks really, really depressing.

The first episode was kind of boring. Not sure I really follow everything so far. Hopefully they show more of HK as the backdrop. That’s what interests me the most. I can tell this is not the kind of show that will spawn much talk.

I’m assuming Nicole Kidman and Brian Tee had another child that died and the young Korean girl server had something to do with it.

The 2nd episode was much more compelling than the 1st. It explained the backstory with Mercy and Margaret and the son. That was heart wrenching when Mercy got distracted and lost sight of Margaret's son in the busy night market. But, it was hard to feel bad for Mercy because she was fucking careless.

It's definitely a slower moving mystery series.
