Critic Reviews for This Close: Miniseries

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (4)

It's an unconventional love story that needs another season to figure out what it really wants to be, and how best to get there. At least the most important elements -- or both of them, anyway -- are in place.

This Close is groundbreaking, necessary, and the fact that it is a genuinely great series - down to its writing, performances, and subject matter - only proves that a platform for this kind of storytelling is long overdue.

This Close is a raw and insightful portrait of two deaf best friends, but it's also messy, a little cliche, and ends with a questionable cliffhanger.

February 15, 2018 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

It's a tender, compellingly realistic story about modern relationships. Its charm comes through loud and clear, even when words are not spoken aloud.

February 14, 2018 | Rating: 3/4 | Full Review…

It's funny and poignant in ways we haven't seen before, and more deftly directed and impressively cast than you'd expect for an original series on a small streaming service. It's also, at six episodes totaling about 150 minutes, an easy binge.

This Close is a little funny, a little sweet, unexpectedly insightful and a worthy reminder that Stern... probably would have been a star long ago if Hollywood were more creative when it comes to utilizing deaf actors.
