Five days at Memorial (2022)

Created by John Ridley and Carlton Cuse

Starring Vera Farmiga, Cherry Jones,

There is a show I started to see without knowing exactly what it was about. I wanted to see a new show and I gave it a shot I found a show that I believe tells an important story and I think they showed what happened without a specific point of view and the viewer decides.

The series consists of 8 episodes and tells the story of Memorial Hospital during Hurricane Katrina. The chaos and the desperation in the hospital as they needed to get patients out to get the care they needed.

The series is compelling and has a lot of suspense as we see the situation unfold in the hospital. Nothing excuses some of the decisions they, but the show presents both sides, the other being that no one can understand what they were going through. I believe it’s a story that needs to be examined in hope that what happened in Memorial does not repeat if another hurricane hits.

Vera Farmiga gives a great performance, she is a character that was firm in believing that she did nothing wrong. Vera allows her performance to be vulnerable yet strong. The whole cast in the show gave great performances.
