Miniseries Spotlight: Rosemary’s Baby (2014)

The 2014 version of Rosemary’s Baby began airing on NBC on Sunday, May 11th and stars Zoe Saldana, Patrick J. Adams, Carole Bouquet, Jason Isaacs, and Christina Cole.  After Rosemary Woodhouse (Zoe Saldana) suffers a miscarriage, she moves to Paris with her husband Guy (Patrick J. Adams).  When they meet Roman and Margaux Castevet (Jason Isaacs and Carole Bouquet), things start to get weird. Rosemary's pregnancy is rough, and she's in pain almost all the time, but she doesn't want to tell Guy because she's afraid he'll ask her to end the pregnancy. (Damn, Satan, if a woman is going to be tricked into having your baby, the least you could do is give her an easy pregnancy.)  It's been awhile since I've seen the original Rosemary's Baby, so it's hard for me to compare the two versions, but I enjoyed the miniseries...some remakes are absolutely horrible, but this isn't one of them.

My rating: 7/10
