Great acting, melodrama, and interesting series.
20 March 2020 | by cruise01See all my reviews

3.5 out of 5 stars.

Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington delivers a powerful performance. Playing controlling mothers. The story starts out good. Reese playing a controlling mother. With one of her daughters despising her mother. And Kerry playing a mother that never stays in one place. Kind of slow. But the story is engaging.
