The Staircase Trailer


The Staircase stars Colin Firth as Michael and Toni Collette as Kathleen, as well as Michael Stuhlbarg, Juliette Binoche, Dane DeHaan, Olivia DeJonge, Rosemarie DeWitt, Tim Guinee, Patrick Schwarzenegger, Sophie Turner, Odessa Young, Parker Posey, and Vincent Vermignon. The Staircase is directed by Michael Stuhlbarg and written by Michael Stuhlbarg and Vincent Vermignon.

The logline for the limited drama reads, “Based on a true story, the limited drama explores the life of Michael Peterson, his sprawling North Carolina family, and the suspicious death of his wife, Kathleen Peterson.”

In 2001, Peterson was apprehended and charged with Kathleen’s murder. In the beginning, he claimed that her death was caused by a fall down the stairs while delirious as a result of a combination of alcohol and Valium intoxication. The autopsy report, on the other hand, disproves Peterson’s claims, concluding that she died as a result of multiple injuries that she sustained. Multiple blows to the back of the head with a blunt object were among the assaults she suffered.
