Two of today’s leading actresses Cherry Jones and Vera Farmiga play CEO and a doctor in Five Days at Memorial, Apple TV+’s chilling, fact-based series about events in New Orleans when Hurricane Katrina struck. We follow them making tough decisions, trying to maintain life against a tsunami of injured patients and people needing shelter under extraordinary circumstances. We learn that there were mercy killings and that the hospital faced physical collapse as water rained in and more horrors, moments that will haunt viewers as well as those who survived. What She Said’ Anne Brodie spoke with Farmiga and Jones in what was a high-spirited discussion that pulled no punches.
