News & Interviews for Atlantic Crossing: Season 1
There's a power in this work that has nothing to do with its characters, a kind that makes itself felt wordlessly -- namely, the unyielding grip of fear.
It moves at a stately pace and concentrates on various royal figures rather than fighting men and women. It looks gorgeous but you have to wonder about the point of it all.
Has its dry moments, but its lavish scenery and fine performances more than make up for that.
Just one episode in, I can already tell you, I am hooked. All aspects are appealing to me, including the history and the focus on World War II. From beginning to end, this episode is riveting.
Audience Reviews for Atlantic Crossing: Season 1
5d agoThe story of Crown Princess Märtha, who fought for her country and her marriage during the tragic events of World War II. Creator:Alexander Eik Stars:Kyle MacLachlan, Sofia Helin, Tobias Santelmann "Atlantic Crossing," a prestigious Norwegian period drama starring Sofia Helin ("The Bridge") as Crown Princess Märtha, and Kyle MacLachlan ("Twin Peaks") as U. S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The limited series, written by Eik and Linda May Kallestein ("Wisting"), sheds light on Martha's journey from Norway to the White House where she sought refuge and became close to U. S. President Franklin D. Roosevelt. The Crown Princess tried to convince Roosevelt to save her country and Europe from Nazi Germany at a time when American voters were strongly opposed to being drawn into another world war. Atlantic Crossing an interesting time in history revisited. PBS Masterpiece Theatre , always excellent programming worth watching!! The story is well written, and there is certainly a lot of tension .Atlantic Crossing is not a documentary and should not be viewed as one. As a historical series, it is exciting, emotional and engaging. This is wonderful TV entertainment and a fantastic period piece that Masterpice Theatre is so good at. It was an interesting character study of Crown Princess Martha superbly acted by actress Sofia Helin .She portrayed the character very well as she matured throughout the series from a somewhat naive soul maturing into a determined woman . Tobias Santelmann, Kyle MacLachlan rounded out the superb cast excellent in their respective roles. I thoroughly enjoyed Atlantic Crossing well worth my time
