Magnificent! Beautiful movie with powerful performances
28 March 2020 | by sjgarson-73183See all my reviews

This little gem packs such a punch, it really is a little masterclass. I found myself rooting for certain outcomes with the introduction of every character. The cast is so well put together it is hard not to be engrossed in this world, a world that the producers have presented with such an authentic feel. I was hooked and found it very hard to take a break; I watched the 4 episodes in 2 sittings. Several emotional scenes are played out so well and effortlessly you forget you are watching netflix.

A stunning must see.
