The patriarchy is alive and well in the Mormon church. Could you imagine having to take orders from your husband in this day and age? And, I’m not even talking about the fundamentalists, who take center stage in this limited series, which is about the murder of a young Mormon mother and her 15-month-old daughter. Worst of all, it’s based on a true story.

I’m starting to think that limited series are my favorite thing to watch. They have just the right amount of time to tell a story. There’s no dragging things out season after season. Conversely, you get so much more detail than you do with a movie.

My rating: 4/5
