    I have worked at startups and find the series to be awesome. It reminds of the late 1990s classic startup film "The Pirates of Silicon Valley" with Steve Jobs. I am a software engineer and biomedical engineer, so the subject of engineering patents also interests me. The music is also excellent and fits the scenes well. I remember "Suddenly I See" was a hit when I was studying for an MPH in 2008 at Florida State. It was popular among the students at that time – Holmes' age group. I was an older graduate student. It's too bad the device didn't work. Conceptually, it's actually a very good idea – but the technology was far behind the planned "production" release. Ultimately, the reality of scientific limits caught up with the company. Its' a great series similar in quality to the earlier Steve Jobs classic (mentioned above) and other series like "People vs OJ", "Impeachment" (Monica Lewinsky and President Clinton) or "Dirty John: Betty Broderick". I have watched the latter multiple times as well.

    I read the book before this series released. The writer mentions that she was actually nothing but a super amazing saleswoman. That's how she fooled everyone.

    Why do we always celebrate women who are miserable, failures and fraudulent..
    I am sick of watching movies on Diana (a failed princess, mom, wife even in love).. And now this.. We need movies like Erin Brookawich..

    I guessed it right. This movie is all about justifying Elizabeth Holmes' actions. Even though she was a successful entrepreneur, she lied and failed eventually because of frauds done by herself while this movie presents her in a very praising way. Movie is good but I would still criticize Elizabeth Holmes for what she did.

    The existence of this character is proof of how broken and ethically corrupt our system of entrepreneurship is.
    We need to tax the rich back into being low 6 six figure millionaires that have to fight everyday to stay that way or lose it all. The existence of the wealthy has been a disease on humanity for far too long.

    Her voice is still not as grotesque as the original one. They should have used some other voice actor for imitating Holmes fake voice.

    How come people make movies over such terrific people. In these times not only people don't take them as bad example but also they take them as aspirants to do such things in future and to loose more.
