“A riveting visual history lesson, whose occasional didacticism is integral to its power.”~A.O.Scott, New York Times

2 stars (Good Try) Set designs & wardrobe are good but why did they make a 2 hr drama when a shorter documentary would have sufficed - the use of archival photos showed they had done the research - at least then you know the truth hasn't been dramatised.~tubbs
