An illicit romance. A woman on the side. A protagonist who isn’t afraid to cross the line, in both work and pleasure — leaving behind a nervous spouse at home, searching for clues about the partner’s infidelity.
Sounds like a typical antihero drama, right? Think again.
“Gypsy,” premiering June 30 on Netflix, is a psychological thriller where the antihero — boundary pushing, taboo seeking, thrill driven — is a woman. The producing team behind the camera is toplined by women too.
What happens when Hollywood flips the script? A nervy drama that depicts adultery, manipulation and sex with a distinctly feminine perspective.
