Very enjoyable
26 May 2020 | by anna_niezgodzkaSee all my reviews

First of all,as the creators say,it's not always historically accurate. So,if you want to lear more about Catharine's life,read a book. But if one is willing to forget about that,it is a very enjoyable show. Elle Fanning is marvelous,she has grown into a fine actress. The cast,in general,doesn't disappoint. Sets are very nice (I think the shot it in Caserta near Napoli),dresses fabulous and the music helps to set the tone. Good for binge watching!
