"The Night Of" (2016) | Mini-Series Review

Genre: Crime, Drama
Premiere Date: July 10, 2016
Network: HBO

The Night Of isn't your typical murder mystery—while a gruesome murder definitely takes place, this crime drama puts the events of that night second to its characters. In a way, this is a coming-of-age story of Naz (Riz Ahmed), who spends a night with a mysterious girl he just met only to wake up next to her bloody dead body. It's not hard to guess he's going to need a lawyer, and the person to step in is John Stone (John Turturro) who isn't exactly famous for these types of cases. If you love smart writing and good character development—you don't want to miss out on this mini-series. Check out my spoiler-free review below!
