Nine Perfect Strangers, based on a 2018 novel by Liane Moriarty. Nine hand-picked people from different walks of life, all desperate to find happiness, put themselves in the hands of a questionable self-help guru Masha Dmitrichenko (Nicole Kidman). Two health resorts located in Byron Bay, Australia stand-in for Masha's remote California healing retreat, the Tranquillum House. Can our nine guests, through the power of introspection and interaction find a way to work through their issues. Filming in a remote location gave the cast an advantage during the Pandemic since they were already isolated.

Masha Dmitrichenko is hiding a secret, she is receiving anonymous death threats.

When was this show filmed?  Isn’t  Melissa McCarthy substantially smaller now?

Last year when everyone was in lockdown I remember an interview with her and her husband in Australia.  I am wondering if this is what she was working on at that time.

Is she? I know she's much smaller now than during her Gilmore Girls/Mike & Molly days, but I didn't know she's had a recent weight loss. I remember reading an interview with her years ago where she said that while she's made lifestyle changes for her health, she's happy with her body and is not trying to be thin.

Will the smoothie pops have micro-doses of magic mushrooms in them?

Melissa lost over 70 pounds.   That’s why I wondered about the timing of the movie.

This is a tabloid article saying that she "reportedly" lost 50-75 pounds. Melissa herself doesn't seem to address her weight at all in the InStyle interview. She does look a bit slimmer in the photos, but that could be due to styling, angles, lighting, and airbrushing. She and her husband did an interview with Seth Myers about two weeks ago, and while you can only see her from the shoulders up, he face still looks pretty full.

I’m looking forward to seeing Kidman in Being The Ricardos, portraying Lucille Ball.  I’ve read great things about it.  I sort of laughed when I recalled how her accent was so canned over her role in Strangers. Lol
