What is it about any show in a palace that has anything to do with what seems like royalty, we are all in for? Then again, with this one, titled, The Palace, it’s not only that – it has a lot to do with Kate Winslet, because she’s fantastic and well, she’s Kate Winslet.
When a show includes her, comes from the minds behind Succession, and airs on HBO, you know that it’s going to be good. It’s going to push limits and be smart. It’s going to be witty. It’s going to be something to look forward to.
And hey, who isn’t intrigued by something that keeps the characters under wraps. We love a veil of secrecy.
Give us intrigue.
The Palace tells the story of a year within walls of the palace of an authoritarian regime as it begins to unravel.
So basically we’re getting no information about the show, and that’s okay because we’re trying to be better people in 2023. We’re trying to remind ourselves that good things take time.
The show did release a pic of Winslet in her role, which is pacifying us also. Do we know anything about her character? Nope (but they are keeping all character descriptions under wraps). Are we still going to watch? Absolutely.
