"A Trump-era dystopia set in a rich man’s house, with ruin, hunger and danger outside. Inside, from his bedroom, 'Sir' rules 'The District' and the lives of Elliott, the butler, and Miranda, the maid. Their romance has hit the rocks, their jobs don’t exist, but she’s got some sort of relationship with Sir that guarantees them food, shelter and safety. Then everything goes wrong, but not in ways that you expect or can foresee. The plot twists all work. The dialogue is stunning. The cast is impeccable."
