Although unsure as to whether it’s a scathing takedown of Elizabeth Holmes (Amanda Seyfried) or a somewhat sympathetic (and darkly comic) portrait of a woman in over her head, The Dropout’s end result is ultimately an eye-opening true crime series about corporate fraud and the unchecked ambition of disruptor culture. Seyfried anchors the series with an awards-worthy performance, nailing Holmes’ vocal intonation and mannerisms perfectly. She truly disappears into the role, from immature college kid to human icicle of a CEO, in unsettling ways, which helps keep the series engaging even if you already know all the gritty details.
