Marriage in danger
Deception, blackmail, manipulation ... This psychological thriller plunges us into a perverse and immoral game.

A Black Mirror on Morality
Presented as an anthology series by its creators Mike Kelley ( Revenge ) and Robert Zemeckis, What / if will tell each season a new moral fable. Still with this same baseline: what happens when good people in all respects start committing illegal actions? More devious, we do not see.
Sexy and poisonous Renée Zellweger
She's changed a lot, Bridget Jones ! No more pilou-pilou pajamas, the actress who finally plays her first role in a series is making a 180 ° turn. Sweet voice, femme fatale look, she embodies a powerful and dangerous seductress, with very obscure designs (but why is she so mean?) Of sexyness, the rest of the cast does not lack with the pretty Jane Levy (lookalike d ' Emma Stone , seen in Shameless and Castle Rock ) and the maddening Blake Jenner (Ryder from Glee) as the manipulated couple.
