Gypsy Trailer: Naomi Watts Has Issues in Netflix's Sexy Psychological Thriller

Is it hot in here? Or is it just this trailer for Naomi Watts’ new Netflix series that’s steaming up our laptop screen?

The official trailer for Gypsy — a ten-episode psychological thriller debuting Friday, June 30 — promises a very adult story, with Watts starring as therapist Jean Halloway, who crosses the line and gets a little too intimate with some of her patients. As she seductively toys with a male patient and later makes out with a female one (!) to the strains of Banks’ lusty “Waiting Game,” Jean muses: “There’s one force more powerful than free will: our desires.” (It’s no surprise that Fifty Shades of Grey director Sam Taylor Johnson helms the series.)

But Jean is married with kids, and her indiscretions start to catch up to her. A therapist colleague warns her, “You’ve blurred so many boundaries,” and Jean admits, “I feel like I’ve been living my life as two people… I don’t know who’s in control anymore.” And when her husband Michael (Billy Crudup) starts to get suspicious of her, it sparks a rift that threatens to bring her whole life — both of her lives — crashing down.

    Why the hell is this thing even called Gypsy? The only Gypsy there ever could be is the musical about Gypsy Rose Lee.

    She says “You’ve BLURRED so many boundaries”, not burned.

    From the director of fifty shades of grey… I’ll pass.

    • dude says:

      In that situation, I dont think the direction was the primary problem with the film.

    • Yeah… that’s such a random reason not to watch! If it was the writer of 50 Shades, I’d understand! But the direction was probably the one thing that wasn’t awful. I mean, Sam Taylor-Johnson is a highly respected and award-winning photographer. She even has an OBE for her services to the arts! I think she did a remarkable job on 50 Shades considering how crappy the material was. I can’t imagine anybody who knows what they’re talking about would see her inclusion in Gypsy as a negative thing. She’s a perfect fit for this show though so I’m looking forward to it.
