Brazen plot summary

Brazen follows crime expert Grace (Alyssa Milano) as she returns to her family home in Washington DC at her sisters’ behest.

Following Kathleen’s murder, Grace teams up with her next-door neighbour, Detective Ed Jennings (Sam Page), to uncover the mystery of Grace’s murder.

Netflix provides audiences with plenty of red herrings before revealing Jerald as the killer. Grace’s ex-husband Jonathon is initially the prime suspect, which turns out to be the perfect misdirection.

At the time of her murder, Kathleen was engaged in a custody battle with Jonathon for their son. With Jonathon’s behaviour becoming secretive, he’s set up as the obvious killer.

However, not everyone has enjoyed the tense thriller.

One fan tweeted: “How on earth is BRAZEN the number 1 watched film in the UK on Netflix? I hate to sound like a film snob but WHO is watching that clip thinking, ‘Oh wow, this looks good, and definitely worth 96 minutes of my life’. Christ.”

This opinion was shared by another user who wrote: “0.5/2 thumbs up. I don’t know if it was the acting, dialogue, or direction that was bad. Perhaps all of the above.”

Despite the mixed reviews, Brazen is currently the No. 4 film in the UK today.
