Award-winning actress Olivia Colman stars as Susan Edwards in HBO Max Landscapers. Colman has proven to be one of the best actresses of our generation, and gives yet another stellar performance in this new miniseries, where she plays a very fine line between murderer and victim. Her emotional range exceeds in this role, as she is in a constant “fragile” state of mind and, at times, child-like, as she flips back and forth from reality to a delusional state where she puts herself in old black and white classic films.
HBO Max Landscapers creator Ed Sinclair, who is also the real-life husband of Colman, takes this strange true story and makes it even weirder as the events begin to unfold. The direction of the series is fresh and clever. Viewers are first introduced to the couple and, at times, feel empathic towards Susan’s mental wellbeing. At times, she is perceived more as a victim in the entire situation, and as the plot unfolds, suggesting the couple were more calculating than initially perceived, viewers become lost in Susan’s fantastical imagination. The camera angles and black and white sequences make for an exciting and intriguing watch.
