In one of the districts of Boston, a schoolboy was brutally murdered. A friend and classmate of the deceased is suspected Jacob, the son of an assistant district attorney. All the evidence points to Jacob, but the father refuses to believe in the guilt of his son and must choose what is more important for him – justice or family.

In terms of visuals, “Defending Jacob” really wants to be like Fincher. A melancholy intro, a still camera, an emphasis on reflections and a faded color palette. However, this mimicry slightly lulls. Especially when you consider that the whole suspense lies in the nervous exchanges and omissions. “Defending Jacob” was impressive. The series is able to push into the sofa and leaves a pleasant aftertaste – including thanks to the atmospheric song from the ever-sad band The National on the final credits.
