What is The Undoing about?

Kidman plays Grace Fraser, a successful Manhattan therapist on the cusp of publishing her first self-help book, You Should Have Known, which admonishes women who lie to themselves about their husbands’ behaviour.

Grace lives the perfect life. She’s married to handsome Jonathan Fraser (Grant), an acclaimed paediatric oncologist and a doting father to their young son Noah, who attends an elite private school in New York City.

But Grace’s life is plunged into turmoil overnight after a violent death sees her husband go missing and leaves her facing a chain of terrible revelations. 

Horrified that she has failed to follow her own advice, and trapped in a very public disaster, Grace must dismantle one life and create another for her child and herself.
