Dark comedy I Care A Lot seems to be the movie that everybody is binging at the moment - and it's not hard to see why.
Penned by Kidnapping Stella writer, J Blakeson, the film stars Gone Girl actress Rosamund Pike in the lead role as Marla Grayson - an evil and yet insatiably captivating villain, who abuses her power as a court-appointed guardian to steal from the elderly.
Marla conns the lonely old people - who often have nobody else - by moving them into care homes before it is needed and then pocketing the money from their properties, as well as their inheritances when they die.
In a review of the movie, The Guardian describe her actions as a "window display of pure predatory wickedness," but one thing is for sure - it's the sort of drama you can't look away from, however much you might want to.
Without giving away too many spoilers, it appears that Marla is getting away with her crimes quite successfully at first. She really has got the whole slick operation down to an art.
That is, until a Russian mafia member (Peter Dinklage) comes on the scene, and it emerges he's actually the secret son of one of the women Marla has tricked - wealthy pensioner, Jennifer (Dianne Wiest).
