News & Interviews for Gentleman Jack: Season 1
It's hard to craft a drama around a person who seems to be invulnerable... The pity is that Anne Lister, a truly audacious, difficult, and groundbreaking woman, ends up with a biographical portrait that's anything but.
Precise, attentive, and beguiling, Jones is such a gust of fresh air, it's tough for the series around her to keep up.
Between Wainwright's crisp, fair-minded scripts and star Suranne Jones' flawless performance, it's tempting to believe that Anne Lister was the most fascinating person of the 19th century...
Gentleman Jack, like its protagonist, has been a triumph of wiry wit, unsentimental empathy and, above all, sheer force of personality, projected with total confidence.
Gentleman Jack brightly but also quietly investigates Anne's unusual life with a winning mixture of humor and charm, giving context to modern gender politics by looking to a pioneer from the past.
A sensible, sensual and captivating drama. [Full Review in Spanish]
Suranne Jones does a tremendous job of conveying the struggle of a woman who constantly chafes against the life she's supposed to live.
Capitalizing on the extraordinary story of Lister, Season 1 unpacks gender performance, sexuality, and female desire; the script is full of thoughtful, sardonic writing.
Audience Reviews for Gentleman Jack: Season 1
Jan 26, 2021Amazing show! Perfectly filmed and great characters. Binged the entire season in two days, cannot wait for the next season!!
Nov 27, 2020Interesting story of a real woman in those times, as Anne Lister defies the norm by telling the world about female's capability in handling day to day business. Top notch acting, those characters were played effortlessly. Not a fan of the bright color tone | follow us at @uncle.review
Oct 12, 2020Suranne Jones is absolutely brilliant in this and carries the series through. There are no bad episodes, the sets and clothing are spot on, i also really like the occasional acknowledgement and look at the camera, a nice touch.
Aug 30, 2020True to life story of an accomplished unconventional woman.
Jun 24, 2020It did not compel me to watch. Frankly, it was boring. And I love Suranne Jones. (Dr. Foster)
Jan 25, 2020The best series since game of thrones great acting and the writing is excellent
Jan 10, 2020I haven't identified this closely with a character since reading Jane Eyre in junior high. Such an incredible relief to see a female character whose problems are mostly external, who's not struggling with self-doubt.
Jan 04, 2020Love this show! Superb acting and script.
Oct 22, 2019This is a great story and is shot very well with a perfect balance of drama and comedic relief and a bit of romance
Oct 12, 2019Just discovered this one on HBO. Lead actress has a unequaled charisma. Good old-fashioned storytelling.
