EASTERN MARION, New York – Forget Thanksgiving, the pandemic, the impending storm and political tensions – the only topic that raged on social media on Sunday night was the finale of HBO’s “The Undoing” starring Nicole Kidman and Hugh Grant.
Without handing out spoilers, the finale brought the audience to a tense train of emotions fueled by Kidman and Grant’s powerful performances – in acting twists many considered Emmy worthy – as the audience finally learned, after weeks of twists, who killed Elena Alves.
And the answer ignited the Internet.
Cancellation: Look, Hugh Grant. Wow! Posted by Bonnie Gries on Facebook.
“The best show of the year,” added Drew Scott.
Another woman wrote that she went through her house, removing everything that looked like a hammer remotely.
In fact, the shocking ending to the series’ finale depends on one very important piece of evidence: a sculpture hammer found in the hearth of a summer house belonging to the father of Kidman’s character, played by Donald Sutherland.
Those who are captivated by the HBO series “The Undoing” have found scenes filmed in this same house on the beach and on the rocky shore acquaintance: The series was filmed in 2019 on the North Fork, and the sound of Long Island provides scary background for the tense drama.
The beach house where Nicole Kidman’s character retires with her son after learning the shocking news that her husband has cheated on her and is suspected of killing a woman is located on Rocky Point Road in East Marion.
The limited series airs on HBO and is available for streaming on HBO Max.
“The Undoing,” according to a HBO.com publication, includes Kidman and Hugh Grant and marks the reunion between Kidman and the creator of The Big Little Lies, David E. Kelly. The series is directed by Susan Bier. The Cancellation is based on Jean Hanf Korelitz’s book You Should Have Known.
The cast also includes Sutherland, Edgar Ramirez, Lily Rabe, Ismael Cruz Cordova, Matilda DeAngelis and Noma Dumezveni.
The series, which debuted on October 25, focuses on successful therapist Grace Sachs, played by Kidman.
“The limited series follows Grace (Kidman) and Jonathan Fraser (Grant), who live the only life they ever wanted for themselves,” HBO said in a news release. “In one night, a chasm opens in their lives: a violent death and a chain of horrific revelations. Left behind by the growing and very public disaster and horrified by the ways she disobeyed her own advice, Grace must dismantle a life and create another for your child and family. “
“David has created another strong series with a charming, sophisticated female role at the center,” Kidman said in an HBO post.
According to Variety, the house, dating back to 1896, was originally a life-saving station and has a massive tower.
According to the Southold Town website, East Marion has been “for more than 50 years the headquarters of a life-saving station that has rescued countless people who would otherwise be lost when their ships were wrecked off the shore.” The United States Coast Guard was in charge of the station during World War II. “
Kidman has filmed at the North Fork in the past: In 2007, she delighted fans who waited for hours to watch as she filmed a scene at Long Island Railway Station in Greenport for “Margot at the Wedding.”
