The White Lotus
Created by Mike White, This HBO Max miniseries features a social satire that follows the vacations of various guests as they relax at an exclusive Hawaiian resort.
It is set in an exclusive and heavenly tropical resort. The story follows various guests of this wonderful hotel and its employees over the course of a week. Although it may seem like a short time, in seven days anything can happen.
But with each passing day, a dark complexity begins to emerge between these seemingly perfect tourists, the employees, and the idyllic place itself: the outcome of a death.
Among the resort’s employees is Armond, a fussy manager who, after a sudden trauma, begins a dramatic downward spiral. Belinda is the other employee who gets involved in a roller coaster of emotions because of a client.
The guests are made up of the Mossbacher family: Nicole, a successful executive; her husband Mark, dealing with an embarrassing health crisis; his teenage son Quinn, a gamer with no social skills; and her daughter Olivia who travels with her friend Paula.
Inspired by real events and recently released on the platform, it tells the story of the writer and war veteran, Michael Peterson, following the suspicious death of his wife Kathleen in 2001 in which he was charged with murder. So mediatic was the case that he managed to have several books and a documentary series that Netflix itself followed years later.
Michael calls 911 to report that Kathleen fell down the stairs of her home in Durham, but after several investigations, the case turns 180. The police suspected that he beat her to death and reconstructed the scene to make it look like an accident. In the trial, evidence related to the murder was also carried out in order to put Peterson in jail, which were later denied.
This gripping mini-series explores how difficult it can be to find the truth and portrays a family’s pain from within. The best thing is that there are new weekly episodes until June 9 on HBO Max.
