Trailer For Peter Sarsgaard's Netflix Series WORMWOOD Tells The Untold True Story of The CIA
LSD experiments, mind control, and the death of a family man are just some of the elements that are intertwined with this upcoming new Netflix series Wormwood. The documentary series stars Peter Sarsgaard and it tells the untold true story of the CIA.
This intriguing six-part series comes from director Errol Morris (The Thin Blue Line, The Fog of War) and it follows the true story of Eric Olsen’s journey to uncover the truth about his father’s death. To tell this story it combines narrative scenes, archival footage, and interviews. I love this kind of stuff, so I can't wait to watch this!
Wormwood explores the limits of knowledge about the past and the lengths we’ll go in our search for the truth. A twisting, evolving story of one man’s sixty-year quest to identify the circumstances of his father’s mysterious death. Combining a virtuosic performance by Sarsgaard with Morris’ legendary interview style, Wormwood examines this case from every possible angle, bringing the viewer face-to-face with some of the United States’ darkest secrets.
The series also stars Molly Parker, Christian Camargo, Scott Shepherd, Tim Blake Nelson, Jimmi Simpson, Bob Balaban, and Michael Chernus.
