Things Heard and Seen

Release Year: 2021

Directed by: Shari Springer Berman and Robert Pulcini 

Starring: Amanda Seyfried, James Norton, Natalia Dyer, Alex Neustaedter, Rhea Seehorn, Michael O’Keefe, Karen Allen, Jack Gore, and F. Murray Abraham

Things Heard & Seen was one of the most highly anticipated thrillers of 2021. The Netflix movie is based on All Things Cease to Appear, a book written by Elizabeth Brundage.

Amanda Seyfried, who was fresh off her Oscar run in Netflix’s Mank, stars in the new Netflix movie that premiered on April 29, 2021.

In the film, Seyfried plays Catherine. After Catherine and her husband, George, move to Chosen, New York, Catherine begins to think her marriage and the new home she’s now living in, is not as it appears to be.

There’s a lot of potential for this story, but it just never felt like it quite lived up to the hype. And, that’s the problem with the movie. It doesn’t quite get there.

Things Heard & Seen is definitely entertaining, but unless you’re a big fan of twisty, cerebral thrillers, there’s probably not much reason to watch this movie on Netflix. There are tons of movies like this on Netflix, so maybe check out one of them instead of Things Heard & Seen. 

Verdict: SKIP
