The show “Unbelievable” is based on a true story. It is a dramatized version of real events that happened to a Young girl Marie (Kaitlyn Dever). This movie was made in September 2019.

“Unbelievable” is a crime drama series on Netflix and this girl Marie that reported she was assaulted, and the cops and detectives don’t believe her. They made her pay a lot of money for filing a false report that wasn’t false. She went with it because she didn’t want to deal with them anymore. After years, detectives were getting more cases like hers and they found the guy and found out Marie was involved. They tried to talk to Marie and she didn’t want to but they gave her a bunch of money, and she moved away and was rich and happy.

This movie was good but very true, which could be hard for some people to watch based on the subject because it is very intense. It can be hard to watch what happened to Marie and how she was treated in the system. What the system did to her makes the show way more powerful and important because Marie is doing way better now.

A positive thing about the show is that there were male detectives, and they thought Marike was lying, and they didn’t solve the case. After years, there were two female detectives, and it took them awhile but they solved the case. This was a good part because it shows that girls are powerful and smart and can do the same thing men do. Also, when sad movies like this happen, and they don’t show the ending of the person who got hurt. I don’t like that and in this movie they showed Marie changed and living her best life.

This show deserves a 5/5 star rating.
