What is it about?

The Undoing is a psychological drama about a woman called Grace Fraser (Nicole Kidman) whose husband Jonathan (Hugh Grant) goes missing, leaving a chain of tragedies – including the murder of a young mother – in his wake.

It is based on You Should Have Known, a 2014 novel by author Jean Hanff Korelitz.

Therapist Grace lives a seemingly perfect life in New York with oncologist husband Jonathan and their young son.

But Jonathan’s sudden disappearance leads to questions about his identity.

A Sky synopsis reads: “Left behind in the wake of a spreading and very public disaster and horrified by the ways in which she has failed to heed her own advice, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.”
