The Keep­ers

The Star Malaysia - Star2 - - What To Watch - – KC

NET­FLIX has done it again with its newest true crime doc­u­men­tary series, The Keep­ers.

The seven-episode series fol­lows the mys­te­ri­ous dis­ap­pear­ance of a nun, Sis­ter Cathy Ces­nik, al­most 50 years ago in Bal­ti­more, Mary­land.

On Nov 7, 1969, Ces­nik drove to a shop­ping cen­tre in the even­ing to buy an en­gage­ment present for her sis­ter. She never came back.

Oddly, her car was found parked near her apart­ment the next morn­ing. The po­lice, friends and fam­ily tried to look for Ces­nik but to no avail. About two months later, her body was found at a land­fill.

Just like watch­ing Net­flix’s first doc­u­men­tary series, Mak­ing A Mur­derer, The Keep­ers gave me goose­bumps. The clues to Ces­nik’s death points to a much big­ger con­spir­acy at work.

Direc­tor Ryan White peeled open Ces­nik’s story, layer by heartwrench­ing layer, so ef­fec­tively.

White uses the el­e­ments of sus­pense and cliffhang­ers view­ers usu­ally see in a fic­tional crime series that kept me at the edge of my seat.

And for the doc­u­men­tar­ian to try and un­cover the truth about a mur­der that hap­pened nearly 50 years ago, The Keep­ers is re­ally some­thing.

The Keep­ers is avail­able on Net­flix.
