Based on the true-crime documentary of the same name and real-life events, The Staircase follows Michael Peterson, a crime novelist and aspiring politician, who is accused of killing his wife, Kathleen, after she is found dead at the bottom of the stairs in their family home. As the investigation and trial continue, new secrets come to life as the family is thrust into the spotlight. Unsurprising to probably everyone, but Colin Firth and Toni Collette lead this brilliant ensemble with two harrowing and jaw-dropping performances.
