Set on Cape Cod, the eight-episode crime drama sees Jackie Quiñones, a hard-partying National Marine Fisheries Service agent – no, really – whose free-wheeling life is thrown into disarray when she discovers a body on the beach: another casualty of Cape Cod’s opioid epidemic. As a result of this trauma, Jackie takes the first steps toward becoming sober – until she becomes convinced that it’s up to her to solve the murder.
Jackie’s new mission puts her “at odds with Sergeant Ray Abruzzo , an abrasive but effective member of the Cape Cod Interagency Narcotics Unit, causing both of them to spiral as they lose themselves in the investigation.
Stars: Monica Raymund, James Badge Dale, Riley Voelkel, Shane Harper, Amaury Nolasco, Atkins Estimond and Dohn Norwood
Despite (theoretically) having more time to watch movies since The Event, the lack of open cinemas and good new things to watch on the streaming services has severely cramped Orange Thursday’s style. So there’s only one movie being reviewed today.
All the same, we do have the first Apple TV+ movie to peruse, The Banker (2020). Based on a true story, it sees Anthony Mackie and Samuel L Jackson going into business together in an effort to make money – and maybe help other African-Americans make money – in the 1960s.
