Wormwood Teaser Trailer
Wormwood plot synopsis from Deadline:
Wormwood explores the limits of knowledge about the past and the lengths we’ll go in our search for the truth. A twisting, evolving story of one man’s sixty-year quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death. Combining a virtuosic performance by Sarsgaard with Morris’ legendary interview style, Wormwood examines this case from every possible angle, bringing the viewer face-to-face with some of the United States’ darkest secrets.
The series will feature, via Deadline, Peter Sarsgaard, Molly Parker, Christian Camargo, Scott Shepherd, Tim Blake Nelson, Jimmi Simpson, Bob Balaban, and Michael Chernus.
Known mainly for his documentary features, I couldn’t help but feeling skeptical about Errol Morris’ Wormwood. True, the series is only partially-scripted, but in my experience most docu-dramas end up being either documentaries, dramas, but rarely a good balance of the two.
Yet after seeing the teaser for Wormwood, I find myself very much looking forward to its release. Boasting a consistently sharp picture quality, one is reminded of the polished look of The Unknown Known, another Morris feature covering or relating to misdeeds by those in our government. Not only that, but the teaser’s quietly nightmarish tone, as exemplified by the final surreal shot of Sarsgaard falling through the air in slow motion, sells the show many times over.
