📣 Top user review: Have been following this story since the original trial. My impression so far is the set decorations, especially the house, is spot on. The cast, the always phenomenal Toni Collette and exceptional Colin Firth are excellent. Supporting cast portrays their roles true to their characters. In my mind's eye I'm watching the show unfold as if I'm seeing the actual victims. The writer's had a lot to work with starting with the trial transcripts and the French documentary The Staircase, so the show feels very real.

The Staircase doesn't hold many surprises for those already intimate with the original documentary, but this dramatization brings a fresh perspective and texture to the mystery -- along with a terrific performance by Colin Firth.

The suspicious death of Kathleen Peterson (Toni Collette), the trial of her husband Michael (Colin Firth) and the arrival of a documentary crew are some of the events covered in this Antonio Campos limited drama series based on the 2004 true crime docuseries of the same name.
