Netflix Pick of the Week: Gerald's Game

geralds game netflix

A harmless game between a married couple in a remote retreat suddenly becomes a harrowing fight for survival.

When Jessie (Carla Gugino) and her husband Gerald (Bruce Greenwood) drive up to their lake house for a weekend, the goal is to spice up their sex life. For Gerald, that means shackling Jessie to the bed in handcuffs and pretending he’s going to rape her. When she resists the offensive game, Gerald decides he’s going to go forward with it anyway, but this time “sweetly,” as if that somehow makes it bearable. But before he can, he suffers a heart attack and drops dead on the floor. With nobody around for miles, and her cellphone just a few inches out of reach, Jessie is left stranded.
