Mosaic (HBO 2018, Sharon Stone, Michael Cerveris)

Published

on


Mosaic, written by Ed Solomon and directed by Steven Soderbergh, is set against the backdrop of a mountain resort town, home to  popular children’s book author and illustrator Olivia Lake (Sharon Stone), whose literary success makes her a local celebrity in the tight-knit community.

At the annual fundraiser, where she is accompanied by trusted friend and confidante JC (Paul Reubens), she sets her sights on a handsome, young newcomer in town, aspiring graphic artist Joel Hurley (Garrett Hedlund). Encouraged by the doting and flirtatious Olivia, he accepts her offer for a place to stay and work, but the unexpected arrival of Joel’s girlfriend, Laura (Maya Kazan), sends Olivia into a jealous tailspin.

Olivia subsequently has a chance meeting with charming stranger Eric Neill (Frederick Weller), another new arrival in town, whose duplicitous intentions to sweep her off her feet for financial gain have an unexpected outcome.

When Olivia disappears on New Year’s Day, leaving behind a blood-soaked studio, Mosaic becomes an intricate whodunit, and it is up to detective Nate Henry (Devin Ratray) and Eric’s sister, Petra (Jennifer Ferrin), to unravel the mystery.

There is an interesting backstory to Mosaic, which was actually filmed late 2015-2016, in that in November 2017, it was featured as the first narrative piece on PodOp’s newly unveiled interactive, mobile storytelling app, developed by Soderbergh, Silver and their partners. Through the dedicated app, viewers can choose from which point of view to follow the story and, in effect, build their own experience from the material created and curated by Soderbergh and Solomon.

Premiered 22 January 2018 and aired over consecutive evenings.
