Murder is on everybody's mind in Bad Sisters, an extremely dark comedy-thriller from BAFTA-winning multihyphenate Sharon Horgan (Catastrophe). Based on the Belgian series Clan, Sisters unspools an intricate and grim mystery about the power of family and the corrosive allure of revenge.
When John Paul Williams (Claes Bang) dies unexpectedly, his wife, Grace (Anne-Marie Duff), is devastated, but her four sisters — Eva (Horgan), Ursula (Eva Birthistle), Bibi (Sarah Greene), and Becka (Eve Hewson) — feel nothing but bitter satisfaction and relief. Their loathsome, manipulative brother-in-law spent years “suckin' the life” out of poor Gracie, isolating her through emotional and psychological abuse while tormenting her sisters in myriad ways both personal and professional. It doesn't take long for two insurance assessors, Thomas (Brian Gleeson) and Matthew Claffin (Daryl McCormack), to see that all the sisters had reason to want John Paul dead — though Matthew doesn't tell his brother why he's so desperate to avoid paying out Grace's claim.
