Disappoitning superficial performances ruin this mini-series
I have to agree with the previous reviewer, jlthornb51. This production was shoddy and a great waste of my time. I kept hoping it would get better, but it seemed to get worse and worse. No offense to Kelli Garner, but much of the fault seems to lie with her "terrible imitation of MM's iconic voice" as jlthornb51 put it, along with her lack of acting skills. Any potential was ruined by the poor casting of Kelli Garner coupled with her much too superficial performance. Susan Sarandon's role seemed a little bit overplayed, but not terrible. Emily Watson gave a decent performance which had to be difficult to pull off, given all the other deficiencies she faced from the script to being forced to play against depthless performances of the other actors. Kudos to Emily Watson for pulling off a positive performance in the face of the otherwise boring overplayed production. Kelli Garner's superficial acting was almost like a caricature of MM, ruining the entire mini-series.
