To put it into some perspective, the Oscar-nominated Scorsese epic, The Irishman, was watched by 17 million viewers in its first five days on the streaming service.
IMDB set up the film in its recent synopsis. “Disheartened since her ex-husband’s affair, Grace Waters feels restored by a new romance. But when secrets erode her short-lived joy, Grace’s vulnerable side turns violent.”
