        Amazing Acting
        25 March 2019 | by laurenelizabethsmithSee all my reviews

        A pretty good show repainting a beautiful, twisted new perspective on a story I'm fairly familiar with and have followed. The acting is all great, but if you've seen much of the real gypsy rose, it's clear how astonishing Joey King is in this role. Amazing to watch.
