The Girl Before, on HBOmax, is based on the best-selling book by JP Delaney that you can check out here (affiliate link). Jane (Gugu Mbatha-Raw) is thrilled to have the opportunity to move into an architecturally significant house. However, the architect, played by David Oyelowo, insists that she follow his exacting rules while living there. Jane accepts that condition, but when she learns that the woman who lived there before died in the house, and there are similarities between their lives, Jane starts to have doubts.
The Girl Before drops February 10. You can see the trailer here.
