Extrapolations (Apple TV+): Should we watch this star-studded fiction?
A series like Black Mirror studied the impact of new technologies on society. less successful, Extrapolations scrutinizes the consequences of global warming on humanity, through these stories carried by an anthology cast. If the environmental cause is not the most attractive theme and the plots are sometimes too demonstrative, the story becomes captivating at times thanks to script finds and the good performance of certain actors, in particular Edward Norton, Sienna Miller or Matthew Rhys. Marion Cotillard’s performance, however, is not one of her best. The series would surely have gained in simplicity, with a probably less prestigious distribution and a more compact plot, but it gives interesting food for thought.
