A harrowing watch.
9 December 2019 | by Sleepin_DragonSee all my reviews

A real change up, less in terms of action, this was more the emotional rollercoaster, plenty of scenarios had been building up to this point, we had internments, arrests, and some pretty uncomfortable moments.

I watched most of this one with a feeling of butterflies in the stomach, at times it was hard to watch, the torture so many were subjected to. The ending was so bleak, it has me in tears. The misery of war.

Incredible detail, amazing buildings, settings, costumes, this has been one breathtaking production.

Helen Hunt showing her quality here. I loved the touches of humour, particularly those from Manville who's sarcasm was hilarious. She's arguably stolen this show.

I don't want this show to end. 9/10
