Critic Reviews for Unorthodox Miniseries

All Critics (21) | Top Critics (10)

Through a glance, or a gesture, or a swell of emotions seen in her eyes, we see that her Esty is proud and scared, self-assured and filled with doubt, but always defiantly and powerfully herself.

Top Critic

If only the miniseries that sets [Esty] free had more to say about the community she's fleeing, or the new world she throws herself into.

Mar 27, 2020 | Full Review…

"Unorthodox" feels like a modest revelation: It uses familiar language to explore what it means to push beyond the strictures of ritual and community guidelines by digging into the mindset of a woman battling to think for herself.

It's both ambitious and beautifully simple.

Mar 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Haas gives an extraordinary performance here, evoking fear, grief, and a mix of both naïveté and wonder at what she discovers in Berlin.

Unorthodox is a profoundly human story centered on Esty. [Full Review in Spanish]

Mar 30, 2020 | Full Review…

With stunning performances and deeply realized worlds, the series tells a poignant and deeply moving story that you won't soon forget.

Mar 30, 2020 | Full Review…

Communicated in English, German, and Yiddish, Unorthodox tells a compelling story about escaping rigorous doctrine and inherited trauma for a life of meaning and self-actualization.

Mar 28, 2020 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

To me, this is really the story of a young woman who wants more from her life, who bravely seeks a new way, who still loves her family and thinks even though she may be disappointing God, she must find her own direction.

Mar 27, 2020 | Full Review…

Though Haas is a standout, it's obvious that thought was put into each actor's performance, as well as the production design.

Mar 27, 2020 | Rating: 4/5 | Full Review…

The true star of the show is the tiny but indomitable Shira Haas, a kind of mini-me Elisabeth Moss who gives Esty a believable sense of inner steel that belies her fragile exterior.

Mar 27, 2020 | Rating: 5/5 | Full Review…

We wish Unorthodox didn't have the menacing specter of Esty's estranged husband (more accurately, his family) interfering with her story of discovery, but the story is well-told despite the thriller aspect.
