I KNOW THIS MUCH IS TRUE
May 31, 2020  | By David Bianculli

HBO, 9:00 p.m. ET

 
This miniseries may be one of the most depressing TV dramas I’ve ever seen – but it’s so well-acted, and so patiently unfolding, that I’m captivated by it. Mark Ruffalo plays twin brothers: one who has been hospitalized for cutting off his own hand during a psychotic episode, and the other brother, who is trying to handle his post-trauma care. As it turns out, the “sane” brother is almost as haunted as his sibling – and the supporting players, who include Archie Panjabi and Rosie O’Donnell, are delivering impressively strong and sensitive work. Tonight, the two brothers face the administrative board that will determine whether the institutionalized brother is released. Either way, this story is far from over… and I’ll keep watching.
