This former flash in the pan A list mostly movie actress who all of you know doesn’t spend much time in front of a camera any longer.
She does have a new high profile television gig beginning next year.
Apparently she wants some great reviews for herself and hooked up with a reporter who is doing a very long interview with her about her life and her acting in the new show.
Review: ‘Mosaic’ is a Frustrating Soderbergh Story, Some Assembly Required
Last year, “O.J.: Made in America,” an ESPN series that was also screened in theaters, won the Oscar for best documentary. High-profile films including “Okja” were released simultaneously in theaters and on Netflix. Several film critics have placed Showtime’s “Twin Peaks: The Return” on their best-of-2017 lists.
All of it raises the question: What the hell is TV anymore?
“Mosaic,” the latest — work? — from the director Steven Soderbergh, will not settle that. But it complicates the issue in some interesting ways.
It is definitely not a movie. Eventually it will be TV, as a six-episode HBO mini-series, airing the week of Jan. 22. But right now, it’s a smartphone app, available for iOS and Android download: over seven hours of video chunks organized into a web, through which you pick your way to the end.
The story, in short: Olivia Lake (Sharon Stone), a famous children’s author, goes missing from her Utah mountain home, and her lover, Eric (Frederick Weller) is jailed for her murder. Four years later, Eric’s sister, Petra (Jennifer Ferrin), shows up to try to clear Eric’s name, her amateur investigation drawing in Joel (Garrett Hedlund), Olivia’s former boarder, and Nate (Devin Ratray), a local cop who worked the original case.
As a mystery, “Mosaic,” directed by Mr. Soderbergh and written by Ed Solomon, is sleek-looking but sluggish, burdened by flat characters. But as an investigation of what stories are and how we assemble them in our minds, the app is fascinating, if not ultimately successful. – Source
