Trivia

Grace shows Dr. Jordan her patchwork square and explains the log cabin represents the home, while "the center is always red, for the hearth." It is traditional to have the center of log cabin blocks red for the hearth or the heart, but it is not required, as seen in the next flashback a few seconds later when Grace and Mary are airing out the quilts of the Parkinson household. The quilt seen on the right of the screen is a log cabin pattern, made with dark/light patches like Grace's, without the red centers. See more »

Goofs

When Grace is beside Mary's bed, just before the cemetery scene, the 'corpse' can be seen gently breathing (torso moving). See more »

An Amazing Story with An Amazing Cast
25 November 2017 | by lilacfieldsforeverSee all my reviews

I found this wonderful series by accident on Netflix. When I saw that Sarah Gadon was staring in it I knew I had to watch it. I have loved watching her movies since I saw her in Cosmopolis. When I saw the great director David Cronenberg was acting in it too. I knew I had to watch. I was not disappointed.

The story was very compelling and kept my interested through out the series. I have to say I would recommend this to anyone that like a crime, historical, or mystery type movie.
