Bloodline (Netflix 2015, Kyle Chandler, Ben Mendelsohn)

Published

on


Set in the Florida Keys, Bloodline centers on a close-knit family of four adult siblings whose secrets and scars are revealed when their black sheep brother returns home.

Bloodline is a brilliantly made series full of fine performances and scripts. When the series opens the Rayburn’s are seemingly the perfect family, a vital part of the community and getting ready to have a pier named in their honour. But then Danny returns and as the episodes unfold everything begins to unravel. Danny is genuinely a loose cannon who seemingly can’t make up his mind whether he wants revenge on his family for past wrongs or whether he wants to take the chance to start again.

The first season ends in truly shocking style which carries massive repercussions throughout the whole second season. Mysterious strangers from Danny’s past arrive with a dangerous agenda. The hole that the Rayburn family have dug themselves into gets deeper and deeper. And the tight-knit family’s once harmonious family dynamic is poisoned by paranoia and mistrust as it slowly begins to unravel. Lies mount. Alliances are betrayed. Relationship are destroyed. The excellent poster for the first season.

There was a third and final season in May 2017 which will bring Beau Bridge’s sinister Roy Gilbert (who appeared in the second half of season two and is clearly a lynchpin of the badness that is going on in the area) very much to the fore.

Opening narration: Sometimes you know something’s coming. You can feel it. In the air. In your gut. And you don’t sleep at night. The voice in your head is telling you that something is going to go terribly wrong and there’s nothing you can do to stop it. That’s how I felt when my brother came home.”

From Netflix’s press release, April 2017…  They’re not bad people, but they did a bad thing… and then a few dozen more. And that will most certainly continue as the Rayburns reach the end of their morally-ambiguous journey in the 10-episode final season of Bloodline, launching Friday, May 26, everywhere Netflix is available. Ben Mendelsohn as Danny and Sissy Spacek as Sally.
