Sissy Spacek and J.K. Simmons shine brightly in Night Sky



J. K. Simmons and Sissy Spacek in Night Sky Don’t you love when a character drops some meta commentary about a work of fiction that actually applies to the show they’re on? “It’s got everything: escape, revenge, deception,” Irene York (Sissy Spacek) says of The Count Of Monte Cristo. But of course, we know she’s really talking about Night Sky. The basic premise of Prime Video’s latest series is simple enough: Elderly couple Irene and Franklin York (J.K. Simmons) have a secret chamber in their rural Illinois backyard that can teleport them to a deserted planet. But like Irene suggests, this show has a bit of everything. It’s not just science fiction; it tackles marriage, grief, identity, and—yes, you guessed it—escape, revenge, and deception, too.
