This looks amazing! Gugu has one of the best performances of TMS. I love thrillers too. So this is a solid combination and I'm extremely excited for this.

I watched that recently. Had no idea that was her until you pointed that out. For perspective, check out Hanks' NYT op-ed ('https://www.nytimes.com/2015/01/14/opinion/tom-hanks-on-his-two-years-at-chabot-college.html?_r=1') when this film came out in 2015 (paywall).

I’m glad to see her get her own show on Apple TV. Her performance on TMS conveyed every nuance it needed to and helped me understand what happened to the real life women in her position in a way I didn’t before, despite being a woman fending off sexual harassment in the workplace and other situations myself. I thought that aspect TMS was well done overall and her performance was part of that quality.

Thanks, great op-ed by Hanks. I had no idea that the movie was inspired by his own community college experience!
