Critic Reviews for Man in an Orange Shirt Miniseries

All Critics (13) | Top Critics (6)

Man in an Orange Shirt presents gay lives and sexuality in a frank, adult manner that may surprise "Masterpiece" fans.

I was afraid the message of "Man in an Orange Shirt" would be simplistic... But the film, strewn with symbols that carry from one story to the other, has other things in mind, and they make it distinctly moving.

An elegant showcase. [Full Review in Spanish]

Feb 24, 2019 | Rating: 3.5/5 | Full Review…

I like my period dramas romantic, but slightly gritty. This looks like a picture perfect postcard of middle-class married life, but beneath the facade there is something much more complex at play.

Michael Samuels' Man In An Orange Shirt is a very watchable drama that explores both the thrill and, ultimately, the tragic impossibility of a homosexual relationship in 1940s Britain.

Man in an Orange Shirt lands with resonance for anyone who has made a wrong decision and wishes for a redo.

Jul 6, 2018 | Full Review…

The Britain of the 1940s is homoerotically charged and cruelly oppressive in this evocative multi-generational miniseries.

Jan 31, 2019 | Full Review…

It is a sad and human story of people trying to do their best when their times allow them no best option.

Aug 7, 2018 | Full Review…

"Man in an Orange Shirt" aspires to be a both a romantic tearjerker and a heartfelt family drama. It doesn't quite succeed on either point, but it has merit nonetheless.

Jun 18, 2018 | Full Review…

Man in an Orange Shirt, directed by Michael Samuels, neatly knits the cinematic and sweeping with the subtle and specific into a kind of naturalistic melodrama. It will fill you with feelings, if you let it.
