Merritt Wever and Toni Collette are starring in the new Netflix true crime drama Unbelievable, but Wever admitted to being rather starstruck by her Oscar-nominated costar behind the scenes. “Working with her was a very big draw for me,” Wever said of Collette. “It was a very huge honor. Did not disappoint.” Collette said she’s been blessed in her career, but feels humbled that many fans still approach her and tell her how they relate so closely to her characters. “I get a lot of, ‘You’re terrible, Muriel’ and ‘I see dead people,’” Collette said, referencing iconic lines from Muriel’s Wedding (1994) and The Sixth Sense (1999). Wever then admitted she, too, couldn’t resist quoting the Muriel’s Wedding line to Collette when they met on set. “I did that to your face. It was terrible,” said Wever. “No, it wasn’t,” Collette said. “She was immediately mortified!” Wever recounted how she could barely get her words out as she spoke to Collette, to the point that her costar was concerned she was having a brain aneurism. “I was like, ‘You’re terrible, Muriel,’” she said. Wever said she couldn’t resist the opportunity to say the line to Collette in person. “To not a small group of people that’s a big deal – to get to Muriel the actual Muriel, and I got to Muriel Muriel,” she said, “and I hold it in my heart.” “I had to text someone right afterwards,” Wever added. “I was so nervous that she was going to think I was a freak.” Watch the full interview with Toni Collette and Merritt Wever here:

IndieWire critic David Ehrlich equally gushed over the movie in his evaluation. “Rian Johnson’s “Knives Out” – a crackling, devious, and massively satisfying old-school whodunnit with a contemporary twist – needs you to know that it takes place on the planet of right this moment. Actually, it needs you to know that it needs you to know. Hardly a minute goes by with out some reference to the right here and now of all of it. When legendary crime novelist Harlan Thrombey is discovered useless the morning after his 85th birthday, it’s as if the previous dies with him and the current comes speeding in to interchange it, keen to assert the inheritance to which it all the time felt entitled.”

Netflix’s “Unbelievable” trailer introduces Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merrit Wever as detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall, who come across two familiar-sounding cases. As Entertainment Weekly reports, hundreds of miles away in a different state, Marie Adler (Kaitlyn Dever), a teenage girl, filed a police report that claimed she was sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home. The police kept trying to poke holes in her story and ultimately determined she wasn’t credible and that there was no victim in this case. Meanwhile, Grace and Karen discover two new rapes on their own turf with the same M.O. as Marie’s alleged attacker. Thus begins the search for a potential serial rapist.

Does this story already sound familiar? That’s because the series is based on the true events in T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong’s Pulitzer Prize-winning article from ProPublica and The Marshall Project titled “An Unbelievable Story of Rape,” as well as the radio episode of This American Life tackling this same subject, “Anatomy of Doubt.” The trailer description comes with contact information for RAINN’s National Sexual Assault Hotline for anyone who has experienced sexual violence in their lives. The number for the hotline is 800.656.HOPE (4673) and the website is online.rainn.org. Unbelievable debuts on Netflix Sep. 13.
