Laura Linney stars in her Golden Globe®-winning role as Cathy Jamison, a 42-year-old schoolteacher who has always played by the rules. That is, until she receives a life-changing diagnosis. But instead of giving up, Cathy decides to live it up! Nothing and no one is safe, including her self-absorbed family, her cantankerous neighbor, and her smart-ass students. Brutally honest, unapologetically funny and perfectly profound, The Big C is a surprisingly different comedy that reminds us that life is always worth living on our own terms.
"Linney is a coolly intelligent actress with a leveling gaze and a beautifully controlled voice that can coddle or crush." - Tom Gliatto, People Magazine
Starring: Laura Linney (Netflix's Ozark), Oliver Platt (NBC's Chicago Med), Gabriel Basso (Super 8), John Benjamin Hickey (CBS's The Good Wife), Gabourey Sibide (Precious)

The four season duration also helps The Big C maintain a consistent level of quality, so unlike many shows out there, the series doesn’t taper off or run out of steam, giving us four rock solid seasons of entertainment. One of the main reasons the show works so well is that while cancer is a prominent presence in the narrative, the story is about Cathy, not so much her illness. Laura Linney is given some excellent material to work with and she really makes the most of the character’s potential, turning in a fantastic, memorable effort. She is able to use the well crafted writing to mold Cathy into a believable, authentic character, which makes her emotional moments, wild decisions, and even mundane situations more impactful. Linney is the heart and soul of the show and her performance is magical at times, she carries the series and that is a real compliment, given how strong this ensemble is. The cast also includes Cynthia Nixon, Oliver Platt, Alan Alda, John Benjamin Hickey, Idris Elba, Reid Scott, Hugh Dancy, and Susan Sarandon. Visit my site for a full review!
