A show that is bolstered and outright kept afloat by the brilliant performances of Firth and Collette. Much of the bluster and force is gone after Episode 4, and we're left with a meandering character study for the remaining episodes. It's not bad viewing per se, but much of the grip and tension makes way to plodding introspection. This mini series does a much better job at showing all angles and then leaning into Michaels guilt, whereas the documentary does everything to frame Michael as innocent. To that end, I'm even more undecided on what I think happened. But I digress. Some award winnning performances and some great composition, but be prepared for some air-y character study towards the backend. Definitely a flat 7/10 for me when all is considered.

colin firth's one failing in this role is that he's too wonderful, it makes me root for him in a way i never rooted for his real life counterpart in the docuseries. excellent dramatization though - i'd say watch the docuseries first if you find the episodes difficult to follow or too confusing to keep your attention. knowing the real story won't make it any less enjoyable a watch, promise! it'll just keep you in step with the moving timeline and family structure.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate that Colin Firth literally delivered the best performance of his whole career.

Overall 6/10, but every scene with Toni Collette 9.5/10.
