The neo-noir psychological thriller “Losing Alice” has made its debut on Apple TV Plus, written and directed by Sigal Avin. The series stars Israeli actress Ayelet Zurer, who previously worked in Man of Steel, Last Knights, and other TV series.
The series follows Alice (played by Ayelet Zurer), a 48-year-old female film director, who feels irrelevant since raising her family. After a brief encounter on the train, she becomes obsessed with a 24-year-old screenwriter femme fatale, Sophie (played by Lihi Kornowski), and eventually surrenders her moral integrity in order to achieve power, relevance and success. Through the prism of this female Faust, the series explores issues such as jealousy, guilt, fear of aging, and the complex relationships women have among themselves and each other. But above all, “Losing Alice” is a love letter for the still-too-rare female director.
The first three episodes of the series are available now on Apple TV Plus. New episodes of the series are released on a weekly basis and are available to stream globally on Apple TV+ through a co-production deal with Israel’s Dori Media productions.
