Fascinating, mesmerizing TV
29 November 2018 | by jr1317See all my reviews

I have always loved film and have been impressed by the gift that actors possess but the two girls in the early segment of the story are amazing. I will never understand how young girls can portray such raw emotion. I love this show, I can only write about what I have seen so far I can't wait to experience the rest
