  • There is merit to The Sinner, but it remains to be seen if the story will find a way to transcend its hokier elements to tell a larger story about mental illness or post-traumatic survival. Hopefully at some point the show will also explain who the titular sinner is supposed to be. Show More

  • Whatever one feels about the story being told, the discomfiting mood established before a single line of dialogue is uttered is unquestionable. ... The overall quality of the performance [by Biel] will depend on what shadings The Sinner gives her to play, but it's a good start. Show More

  • For this to work requires a strong actor playing Cora, and Biel (who also executive produces) delivers. Show More
