This is the Newest and the Latest Review of I Know This Much Is True Season 1 on HBO. It is Released on 10 May 2020. Written by: Derek Cianfrance. I hope that you Gonna like it.
We got something special for you today which is an advanced screenings review of the upcoming HBO miniseries I know this much is true this is based on the novel by Wally Lamb and the series itself is written and directed by Derek C in France.
Who did Blue Valentine and Place Beyond The Pines I saw the first two episodes of this all it all told it’s seven episodes long but the screener was the first two episodes and it’s premiering on Sunday, May 10th at 9 p.m. is when the first episode of this is going to air this stars Mark Ruffalo as twins Dominic and Tomas Brizzy? I hope that you gonna like my summary.
Who were both born into like a sort of tabloid celebrity scenario because they were New Year’s Eve babies born six minutes apart and in the middle of those six minutes was midnight so technically one baby is born one year and the other the next this was I believe years before the tabloids were writing about bat boy and a Sasquatch and thing and things like that a majority of this is taking place in 1990.
When both characters are 40 years old and you have the character of Dominic who is divorced certainly gone through family tragedies in the past and then there’s Thomas who is in and out of the hospital because he’s a paranoid schizophrenic it opens with a very brutal thing that happens that Thomas does to himself and it winds him in a maximum-security insane asylum.
We see a lot of things in flashback like what the brothers had to go through in their youth how his mental illness increased over time why Thomas has not Thomas Dominic has grown up these severe anger issues in dealing with his brother for 40 years and also an abusive stepfather and he’s spending a lot of time trying to get his brother out of this hospital and moved to one that he was in previously so you’re seeing this guy.
I hope that you will like my summary. Who’s very angry at this mistake that he thinks happened his brother has ended up at the wrong place this is going to be like a maximum-security prison and having to be told how and why his brother would end up at a place like this Mark Ruffalo is fantastic in this the special effects are great.
The writing and the acting are so well in these characters that it doesn’t feel like you’re watching the same actor just doing two parts it feels like two different characters two wildly different performances in just right down to like their height even their weight their speech manner and things like that is it is completely believable that these are two different guys and these are two wildly different performances the camerawork with how they do the effects are great there’s when he’s being taken to this maximum-security Asylum.
There’s a big long shot with the camera where it’s AIT’s it’s moving all over the place we’re following this scuffle here his brother being dragged over here Dominic yelling at staff Thomas wetting himself and there are very little cuts in this sequence and it looks perfect it looks real that these are that they are that mark Ruffalo is just in two places.
This is going on there was only one time where I really noticed something and that was there’s a fight in the second episode and when this happens you can see the profile of Thomas’s face that it looks like makeup and prosthetics on another actor that was the only thing that was the only time, I Know This Much Is True Season 1 HBO (2020), I ever noticed anything like that but what I do really love about this is that while Ruffalo’s great these two characters are great they are written flaws and all especially Dominic. I hope that you are going to like this summary.
It’s not just some simple story of like oh here’s the normal guy here’s his brother who’s in the hospital no not at all because you see the very clear rage issues that that Dominic has in the movie but it’s a real ensemble too they surround our main characters with not just a great supporting cast but a lot of whom are really playing against type in this I really like Rob Huebel is Dominic’s buddy in the movie.
Who’s this car salesman and struggling actor and there’s a great there’s a there is a really fun sequence where he’s excited that he’s on this seafood commercial that’s airing on TV and he’s talking to Mark Ruffalo on the phone and he’s wanting feedback as if he’s just given this Broadway performance in this like what looks like a local Red Lobster type chain or something like that Rosie O’Donnell is in. I hope that you would like this summary.
This as the social worker at the maximum-security hospital she’s great like her scene where she is really breaking down that this place might not be this Hell on Earth that Dominic thinks it might be and why one he needs to calm down and to really think about what your brother did to himself and trace the steps of how he really ended up at this place it’s a great sea with her and Ruffalo just playing off of each other.
She’s fantastic and she has a few funny lines in it that are funny so yeah definitely and delivered and delivered incredibly well but not but it’s not like her character is throwing out a joke or something like that or a one-liner or anything it’s just a humorous line that is realistic and authentic to this pretty tense situation that’s going on between these two characters Kathryn Hahn has a very subtle and tragic and quiet performance his ex-wife and one of my favorites in this in the first episode Juliette Lewis plays.
I hope that you must have liked my review. This linguist who’s hired by Dominic to translate a manuscript written in Italian that he found from his grandfather and the catalyst that kind of set all of this off with Thomas has to do with their mother being sick and Dominic wants to have this manuscript translated so he can give it to their mom as a gift and Juliette Lewis steals her scenes in this.
She’s fantasies this eccentric language expert that’s talking about how she’s translating this book but keeping in some words in Italian so it can flow like music and like poetry but then she breaks it down to him that this manuscript she’s that she’s translating is apparently just awful and like she’s she straight-up says. If you’re giving this as somebody as a gift you may not want to do that and she has a scene-stealing scene.
Where it’s her and Ruffalo together they’re having pizza and she can just throw out a line about being annoyed that the kind of pizza she got was different than what they ordered and let’s just say that like there are some drinks that are involved and um there are drinks that are involved and this night gets very heavy and very crazy relatively fast it’s a great scene it was one of my favorite scenes in the two parts. I Know This Much Is True Season 1 HBO (2020). I hope that you will like this review.
I hope that as the episodes go on we see more of Juliette Lewis and Rosie O’Donnell and Rob Huebel and all of these really good supporting characters incredibly well cast I really enjoy also how bleak the series looks it’s a show that not just deals with the schizophrenia on the part of the brother but also the depression in terms of Dominic’s character Katherine Hans character.
There’s a lot of scenes outside that are either pitch-black or overcast or raining I like that touch to it it really made it goes well along with the mood with a lot of what these characters are talking about in here I even like little subtle details in it – how Dominic is a he’s a house painter for a living. I hope that you must like my review.
They do that they add like little like dried up paint like under his fingernails there’s nice there are nice little touches like that in this series I completely recommend this I mean alone just for like I would recommend it enough for the writing the directing Ruffalo’s dual performance and that right there would be enough to really highly recommend it.
It is but when you factor that in with the much larger scope of these two characters’ lives and the really good casting that it does on the supporting cast and how really three-dimensional they make a lot of these supporting characters even in just the two episodes.
I saw some of them having only been in like one or two scenes that I saw and it’s so well written and well-acted that you instantly get a feel of these characters this comes out again on Sunday, May 10th at 9 p.m. I hope that you will like the review.
