Cate Blanchett’s scarier in this than in the entirety of _Thor: Ragnarok_.

I be perfectly honest, the sole reason I went into this was Cate Blanchett. I didn't knew any of the real life characters or much about the events depicted here. Now, first, from the point of acting this was great. Even not knowing the real persons I enjoyed the performances very much. Especially Cate, I am a huge admirer of her. But there is no one in the cast who was bad or even slightly weak. As for the story - like I mentioned I didn't knew the first thing, really. Not quite my time and not my country. They say that some things in the show are altered so I don't know what is true. I can only say something about the story as it is presented. I had difficulties finding sympathie for any group. It was all really black and white. Both sides have valid points and both sides can be downright ridicoulous. And please, I am not against Equal Rights, I just comment on the show. The ERA Movement had to much trench fighting going on. Everyone wanted to add something, wanted his agenda pushed to the top. When people say: "This is what WE want" more often than not what they mean is "This is what I want". For Phillys it was never about the cause anyway, it was all about her. It was a way to put herself into the spotlight to push her career. Tragically she was the prime excample of a woman who could have benefitted from the ERA. But in the end she got what she fought for instead of what she wanted. I am a bit at a loss in terms of what rating to give. The production is great, acting like I said, too. The story is important to know and yet at the end I was left somewhat ..... indifferent. It wasn't as engaging for me as it probably needed to be. Therefore I choose "just" a 7 but it is one of the better 7s.

About Me

I am Sophie and this is my website.

A little about me 👋 I am a marketing student in Paris. I love spending afternoons with friends in a cafe or a park.

But more than anything else, I love watching (.. binging…) series on my computer on rainy Sundays or any sunny day for that matter 🙈

I must have watched hundreds of shows by now, from romance to science-fiction series. Often I like to go back to a show I enjoyed. But I don’t feel like watching it all over again…

I created this website so myself and others could find the best episodes of our favourite shows. As of today, I have about 1,000 shows on the website with votes and rating coming from fans.

Hopefully, you can join me from your sofa and enjoy some nice TV!
