Maid: Miniseries | Reviews

Clever, open-eyed depiction of just how difficult it is to break a cycle of abuse. Margaret Qualley is tremendously empathetic (and so, surprisingly, is her IRL mum Andie MacDowell).

Parts of it are deliberately difficult to get through, yet the show is surprisingly watchable given the nature of the story, and at times even light and charming.

Many of the performances, including Robinson's Sean, are layered and specific, but none so much as Qualley's.
