Julia Roberts meets ‘Mr. Robot’ vibe in ‘Homecoming’

Julia Roberts is the marquee name, but “Mr. Robot” creator Sam Esmail provides the defining presence in “Homecoming,” whose creepy vibe and unreliable protagonist greatly echo that other paranoid conspiracy thriller. Slow at first, the 10-episode Amazon series finds its groove in later episodes, which explore the kind of provocative themes that make this feel like a “Black Mirror” installment stretched into miniseries form.
