Amazing acting anchors this new sci-fi series from BBC America (shot in Toronto). Tatiana Maslany plays multiple clones in this thriller that opens with Sarah, a gritty young outsider witnessing the suicide of a woman who looks exactly like her - except more affluent. Sarah assumes the identity of this unknown woman - who ends up being a police officer. Soon bullets are flying and mysteries are multiplying. This series deftly explores the ethics of human cloning, but soars by focus on female agency - each woman that Tatiana plays has her own way of dealing with the crazy situation they share, and its fascinating to watch how things develop. Season Two debuts in April. I can't wait! Check Our Catalog.
