Always in awe of Mirren but "meh"
8 October 2019 | by dpoland-76589See all my reviews

I had such high hopes. It's so unfortunate that they spent an enormous amount of money on sets and costumes when many characters are terribly miscast.

Helen Mirren is a force to be reckoned with in anything she does, never mind age gap being historically inaccurate here. But, her gift is not harnessed because of script. The casting of Potemkin was an outright disaster.

A sad misstep as a show but at least I had a few hours of Mirren.
