television news. the knick.


Steven Soderbergh & Clive Owen?  Gah!  Soderbergh [visionary film director, for those who may not know who he is] is back, again, from his retirement from film.  Thankfully!  And, actor Clive Owen?  I am happy to watch him on screen anytime.  Together?  With a great story line?  How can one resist?  The Knick, set to air ‘this summer’ on Cinemax and HBO Canada, is set in downtown New York City in the early 1900s.  It centres on the Knickerbocker Hospital and its groundbreaking surgeons, nurses and staff, who push the bounds of medicine in a time of astonishingly high mortality rates and zero antibiotics.  Watch the first teaser trailer here (HBO Canada) or here (Cinemax).
