Unbelievable Is The New Netflix Drama You’re About To Be Addicted To

When teenager Marie Adler, played by Kaitlyn Dever, files a police report claiming she's been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story. 

Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (played by Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.

Unbelievable is inspired by the real events in The Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer Prize-winning article, An Unbelievable Story of Rape written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, and the This American Life radio episode, Anatomy of Doubt.

The show is directed by Oscar nominees Susannah Grant and Lisa Cholodenko and follows a dark story of unspeakable trauma, unwavering tenacity, and astounding resilience. Watch the trailer below.

If you got around When They See Us, you’re bound to love Unbelievable, it lands on Netflix September 13.

And here's every movie worth watching on Netflix right now.
