Summary

The Ryan Murphy-produced anthology series Feud: Bette and Joan focuses on how Joan Crawford (Jessica Lange) and Bette Davis (Susan Sarandon) came together to make “What Ever Happened to Baby Jane?” despite their heated rivalry

What The Critics Say (Metascore 81)

  • Easily the best new series of 2017 so far, Feud will prove especially appealing to fans of old Hollywood and smart, layered storytelling. — Rob Owen, Pittsburgh Post-Gazette
  • Both Sarandon and Lange shine in the crucible of competition too. Sarandon seems better cast, sharing Davis’ enviable bone structure and her ability to exhale a one-liner like cigarette smoke. And yet it’s Lange who’ll make you swoon. — Daniel D’Addario, Time
  • The rise of the new TV anthology, in which the unit of measure is the season rather than the episode, could encourage filmmakers to pore over the cultural history of Hollywood in granular detail. Murphy’s Feud deserves credit for getting there first, but that’s about it. — Matt Zoller Seitz, Vulture
