The Peo­ple v. O.J. Simp­son: Amer­i­can Crime Story

Australian Women’s Weekly NZ - - On screen -

Cre­ated by Scott Alexan­der and Larry Karaszewski. Star­ring Cuba Good­ing Jr, Sarah Paul­son, John Tra­volta, Court­ney B. Vance, Ster­ling K. Brown and David Sch­wim­mer. Screen­ing on Net­flix and avail­able on DVD/Blu-ray.

Af­ter see­ing this 10-episode sea­son win a swathe of Em­mys and then two Golden Globes, it rock­eted straight to the top of my must-watch list – and it did not dis­ap­point. Feed­ing into my hazy mem­ory of those head­lines as they hap­pened in the mid-90s, this com­pellingly crafted pro­duc­tion colours in the de­tails as ad­dic­tively as they un­furled two decades ago. This is, of course, the very true story of ar­guably the most fa­mous celebrity crim­i­nal case in his­tory, a story which played out across the TV net­works of Amer­ica and the world. With an out­stand­ing per­for­mance from Sarah Paul­son an­chor­ing this drama, you’ll be glued to your screen from the get-go. I know I was.
