One of the first conversations production designer Alex Holmes had with “The Invisible Man” director Leigh Whannell was about grounding the film in reality and treating it like a psychological thriller, rather than a horror or science-fiction movie.

“I felt that any horror and gothic genre tropes didn’t feel right. The audience had to believe in the technology for it to land,” Holmes explains.

He designed the invisibility suit as a wet suit looking outfit with cameras all over it in a hexagonal design. “It was what everyone responded to,” he says.

He did his homework researching invisibility technology and learning how objects become invisible by going to the University of Sydney and speaking to professors there. “I had long chats with Jim Rabeau, a physics professor. He was a great help. He said, ‘In theory, invisibility is

Imagine delivering a career-defining performance in a language you don’t even speak. That was the challenge presented to Shira Haas, the Israeli actress whose galvanizing turn propels “Unorthodox,” a four-part Netflix limited series about a young woman who leaves her Hasidic community behind.

As the courageous lead character Esty, who abandons everything she knows in her search for self-actualization, Haas cycles through many different phases of her character’s journey, from childhood to marriage to her new life in Berlin. She embodies these transformations in Yiddish and English — neither one is her native Hebrew tongue — with poise, nuance, and specificity, delivering a tour de force that makes “Unorthodox” entirely gripping from start to finish.
