Gets off to a great start, but the miniaturist's lack of motive holes it below the waterline
24 January 2018 | by See all my reviews

A beautifully paced beginning, with some excellent acting (especially from Anya Taylor-Joy), peters out following the big reveal about the marriage.

Given the miniaturist seems to remain unpaid after supplying unsolicited miniatures, I really didn't understand what motivated her. (So it clearly wasn't money. Was it that she was driven, as an artist, to create her works? If so, that needed to be communicated much more clearly.)
