The 10 best shots of “Dopesick”

Released on Hulu last October and arriving in Italy in November on Disney+, Dopesick is an 8-episode miniseries about the fight against opioid addiction in the United States.
Based on the bestselling book Dopesick: Dealers, Doctors and the Drug Company that Addicted America by Beth Macy, the series focuses on the affair involving the pharmaceutical company Purdue Pharma following the release of the drug OxyContin.
The events are told from the point of view of various characters, starting with members of the Sackler family, owners of Purdue Pharma, through the prosecutors who followed the investigation, to a doctor from Virginia, played by Michael Keaton

The tones and colours of the episodes are always very dark and cold and in some cases the photography by Checco Varese manages to underline the intensity of certain moments and aligns with the moods experienced by the characters. 

We have selected 10 frames that have remained impressed in our minds.
