Today, Netflix have released the trailer for their new six-part thriller, based on the best-selling novel by Sarah Pinborough.
Simona Brown plays Louise Barnsley, a young, single mum whose otherwise uneventful life is plagued by night terrors. But things take a turn when she becomes romantically involved with her handsome and mysterious boss, psychiatrist David Ferguson, played by Tom Bateman.
To make matters more complicated, David also happens to be married to the beautiful, seemingly-perfect Adele, played by Eve Hewson.
When Louise bumps into Adele by chance, they form a secret friendship and bond over Adele’s own history of nightmares. Adele learned to control hers years ago and wants to teach Louise to do the same with the help of instructions in an old journal written by Rob, a troubled friend from her past.
As Louise reads through Rob’s journal and grows closer to the lonely and isolated Adele, she learns more about Adele’s complicated marriage and turbulent history filled with trauma and loss.
She also learns about Adele’s friendship with Rob, who was once Adele’s closest friend during their stay at a psychiatric hospital but is now strangely absent. Adele had taught him the art of lucid dreaming - the ability to control his dreams.
From there, the love triangle and web of lies unravels, exposing secrets with the help of the supernatural.
The series has been written by Steve Lightfoot and Angela LaManna and produced by Left Bank Pictures who brought us The Crown.
Behind Her Eyes launches Wednesday 17th February on Netflix
