If you did not already know, Hulu just released the first two episodes of his new series on real crime L & # 39; act with Joey King as Gypsy Rose Blanchard. L & # 39; act is based on the horrible buzzfeed report (and later HBO documentary Mom dead and dear) about the murder of an unmarried mother, Dee Dee, and the relationship with her gravely ill daughter Gypsy who was never sick. I do not want to deepen everything that happens in case you want the rest of the series to stay intact, but you can read everything about the true story here:
However, I want to talk for a moment about the pilot project. L & # 39; act opens with the voice-over of an extremely scary call to 9-1-1, while Mel (Chloé Sevigny), the neighbor of the Blanchards, knock on the door urgently.
A teenage girl Lacy (AnnaSophia Robb) reads a graphic publication on Facebook aimed at the operator. "That bitch is dead, and then … uh … I screwed that pig in. She raped her sweet and innocent girl, her screams were so loud."
But the first time we actually meet Gypsy Rose and her mother – whom I really could not say, it was Patricia Arquette until the end of the first episode – seven years ago, while that was the first time we met. They were interviewed by a local news channel about their new home, built for them by Habitat for Humanity.
Dee Dee compares the gift of living in a Disney film, to which Gypsy echoes, "we love Disney movies". Dee Dee continues to tell the reporter how she and her wheelchair daughter were homeless after Hurricane Katrina, but when the reporter starts asking questions to Gypsy, Dee Dee takes control of it several times. Finally, she starts talking when asked if she is excited to make new friends.
