Aldis Hodge plays Assistant District Attorney DeCourcy Ward, who’s just arrived from Brooklyn. By the end of the first episode, Ward has been so manipulated by both the Boston police and his own office that he’s willing to do just about anything to avoid further abuse.

The movie is reasonably creepy and weird, but it isn’t quite creepy and weird enough on the one hand and doesn’t […]Read On »
