PHYSICAL is taking Sheila (Rose Byrne) into the limelight of national coverage. Life is changing and moving faster than ever before. Can she keep up, quiet her latest inner hallucination, and keep it all together? Come on…it’s PHYSICAL. Dare I say more?
The possibility of sugar is wreaking havoc in Sheila’s mind. What does she like to eat or do? Hard questions for someone who doesn’t know themselves very well. 50/50 is tough for her ex, Danny (Rory Scovel). He is dangling just a hair above a breakdown. Divorce is showing him the realities of life and childcare. Running is not the answer.
The writing is quick and to the point. The story is an emotional roller coaster with highs and lows being broadcasted every second. No one is strong enough to lead the way. All they are doing is smiling and letting the chips crash.
PHYSICAL has its mask on tight, so there are no hints when Sheila will bust out of “normalcy.” I hope before that moment, the red-faced weatherman gets a few friendly workout pointers. It is available to stream on Apple TV+.
