    Eve Hewson is to star opposite Clive Owen in Oscar-winning director Steven Soderbergh's new, 10-part series for Cinemax, The Knick.
    Deadline.com, which broke the news of Hewson's casting, says the series is set in New York's Knickerbocker Hospital in 1900 as staff strive to break new ground in medicine.
    Hewson, the daughter of Bono and Ali Hewson, will play Lucy, described as "a young, naive nurse from the South" who comes to New York for adventure.
    The cast also includes Michael Angarano, Andre Holland and Juliet Rylance, with Soderbergh directing all 10 episodes.
    Production is due to begin in New York in late September.





    Clive Owen stars as a Dr John W Thackery, surgeon at the hospital. The Knick also features Steve Garfanti, Andre Holland, Juliet Rylance, Chris Sullivan and Jeremy Bobb.
    No announcement on the premiere date has been made but the series will air 10 episodes.

    Calling that video a 'tease' is really stretching it

    "Comes to New York for adventure...". That doesn't sound marvellous to be honest. I'll give it a chance though. The last thing I saw She-Bono Jr. in was 'This Must Be The Place' which was a complete pile of ****e!

    80's soundtrack

    80's soundtrack

    Yeah not sure how I feel about the snyth as of yet, thought they would have gone for something more classical.

    episode 2, what a contrast between Dr. Thackery & Dr. Edwards :eek:


  • Registered Users Posts: 2,318 ✭✭✭ PhiloCypher


    Really enjoying this anachronistic soundtrack and all.


  • Closed Accounts Posts: 2,748 Dermighty


    The soundtrack is more like a the Mass Effect soundtrack than anything else, very much enjoying the show, Clive Owen is excellent in nearly everything he is in in my opinion.

    episode 4, Dr Thackery seemed to a little recognize Dr Edwards talent but due to his racist attitudes, he might take a longer time to appreciate & accept Dr Edwards

    I don't even know if thackery is racist, I think he likes the status quo and having a black doctor would entail dealing with people who are racist and that is probably more work than thackery is willing to put in.

    I don't think he has anything against Edwards except he couldn't be arsed dealing with having someone that rocks the boat for patients.

    from the introduction knowing Dr Edwards is a black, he has been hurling remarks on him & disallowed him to perform op , if this is not racist i don't know what to say ;
    despite that Dr Thackery values talent & he started to recognize & impress by Dr Edwards from episode 4 & 5, his attitudes toward him only begin to change after the op in episode 4 & even choice him to perform with him in episode 5 though he can always get his subordinates & the claim of shortage of staff just an excuse

    5 episodes in and I think it's excellent.
    I'm surprised there hasn't been more of a buzz around it tbh.

    Found it goes well with the drugs he took?

    14 minutes in, and it grabbed me. Liked the first episode.

    Just finished watching the first season. Liked it a lot. The ending
    was pretty bleak for just about every character... Will be interesting to see how season 2 plays out, with the unwanted marriage, the moving of the hospital, and Thack's 'recovery'.
