Her sister Mamie Gummer is very talented but this is the first thing I've seen Louisa in. Sadly, I have to agree. Overall, I found Louisa to be lacking charisma to a degree I found distracting at times, particularly in a lead role. Maybe she'll grow on me. I also found a lot of the writing to be very stilted. I realize people were generally more formal back then, but this is something more. I know how gifted so many of these actors are, so it has to be the writing. Many of the conversations just don't flow at all. Fortunately, there are so many other wonderful things to look at and think about that I'll keep watching. 5 hours ago, Cheezwiz said: Loved that they're slipping real historical people into the story here and there - especially Stanford White - we're still a couple of decades away from his mega-scandal, but it's tantalizing seeing him in the mix. What did he do? There's nothing I like better than 140 year old gossip! 😁 3 6 Link to comment
