REVIEW: Does new Netflix series CHAMBERS have enough heart?

Sasha is a high school student who has a heart attack while canoodling with her boyfriend. Miraculously, another local young woman, Becky, dies and Sasha receives her heart.

Weird shit starts to happen with Sasha seeing visions and feeling connected to the
now dead Becky. Suddenly, Sasha is immersed in Becky’s world and becomes
obsessed with solving the mystery surrounding Becky’s death.

The closer she gets to uncovering the truth, the weirder and more sinister it all
becomes.

Should I watch?

Hmmmm yes and no.

The first few episodes reeled me in, and this was shaping up to be an interesting
series. With more than a casual nod to Jordan Peele’s break out horror movie Get
Out,
it was exploring assimilation, grief, privilege – all from the non-white
perspective.

Then, it all went pear-shaped. It started to turn in on itself and became so convoluted that its core message was getting lost in the muck.

However, Uma Thurman puts in a heart-breaking performance as Becky’s grieving mother, Nancy.

Her pain is raw, palpable and all consuming. Even my cold, dead heart (no pun intended) bleed for this tormented woman.
