THE UNDOING TF1. Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant embody the protagonists of the series The Undoing broadcast on TF1. But is the plot inspired by a true story?

[Mis à jour le 12 janvier 2022 à 20h44] The Undoing is a series broadcast every Wednesday until January 19, 2022 on TF1. Nicole Kidman plays a woman whose husband, played by Hugh Grant, is suspected of having committed a murder. As is often the case with detective series, one can wonder about the border between fiction and reality. Unlike other series, The Undoing (literally “defeat”, in the sense of defeating) does not adapt a news item that actually happened. However, this is the adaptation of the novel First impressions by Jean Hanff Korelitz.

Yes Nicole kidman is used to playing grueling roles, she revealed in Marc Maron’s (WTF) podcast that The Undoing’s was particularly complicated. The actress also seen in Big Little Lie explained, “I was completely flat for a week, because the immune system couldn’t tell the difference between the game and the real thing when we were shooting.” For this, her role in The Undoing is certainly one of those that most marked the Australian-American actress!

In the United States, the Undoing aired at the end of 2020. Critically acclaimed, this mini-series received Golden Globe nominations the following year, notably in the categories Best Mini-Series, Best actor, best actress and best supporting actor. However, she did not win an award. In addition to Nicole Kidman and Hugh grant, the cast reunites Donald Sutherland and Edgar Ramirez. The Undoing is broadcast on TF1 with two episodes on the TV program every Wednesday evening, at 9:05 p.m.

SynopsisGrace and Jonathan Fraser are a model couple of American high society. As part of a fundraiser for their son’s school, Henry, Grace meets Elena Alves, mother of a scholarship student. The next day, Elena is found dead, and Jonathan is missing. Grace begins to wonder about her husband’s responsibility in this matter.
