This two-part event has a wonderful grasp on seventeenth-century culture and the justice system that was in motion at the time. With the twisted and eerie setting of a woman, who is voluntarily thrown into this madhouse of a family. It gives a good sense of racial and gender roles without being overly feministic or equal rights pushy. The acting involved is great and well executed. Allowing for the more emotional scenes to fully pass over to the audience. With the mystery of The Miniaturist actually not being the takeaway factor from this miniseries, as it does a great job of building characters and creating incredible drama. Worth a watch if you have two and a half hours to spare.


An interesting blend of history, gender and race studies, societal norms, mysticism and above all character and strength. Great cast. Interesting story. I give this 2 part limited series an 8 (great) out of 10. [Mysterious Drama]
