    A wonderfully made film. Was so shocked by the twist.

    Fascinating & riveting...,acting was ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ ⭐️ . Finished it last night and still thinking about it. I don't care about a S2...but more of these top-notch films should be shown.

    Amazing in so many ways. The overall atmosphere is a mix of psychological, horror & elegant aspects, not to forget the warming opening theme, class dialogue, complex storytelling, and top camera work. Sarah Gadon is one fine promising actress too | follow us at @uncle.review

    Very well done, IMO. Good story, well written, well-directed, and well-acted. Marvelous.

    Superb reconstruction and magnificent interpretation of Sarah Gadon As in all nineteenth-century reconstructions, there will always be a dark side in the narrative of these period stories, for or against with or against, there will always be subject to controversy or discussion. It's actually a very, very pretty drama series, with an exceptional portrayal of Sarah Gadon as Grace Marks and not to mention the wonderful re-enactment. Nothing to say against, it's a good series of the genre.

    Over all a very tense and well executed story with flawless acting and visuals. Unfortunately, the fact that the entire plot hinges on most of the female characters being stupid and most of the male characters being literal rapists is incredibly frustrating and distracting. However, the reveal that the story has likely been altered or embelished by Grace to gain sympathy from the doctor almost saves it. I can only really describe this as "very on brand for Margaret Atwood".

    Haunting story with excellent performances. A great series to binge on during a stormy day.
  • Dec 16, 2018
    Loved it. Literary and artistic and I was never sure where it would lead. It made a powerful statement on women's roles in society.

    Chicks get a raw deal in the olden days.
