11 May 2020 | by UniqueParticleSee all my reviews

Top notch great A entertainment! Superb acting, writing, cinematography, and soundtrack! I know This Much Is True deserves praise it's so well done and I knew it would be after seeing previews for awhile. Crazy how there's already other reviews bashing the series especially since the premier been has had a chance to be out; the series is phenomenal and hopefully others feel that way. Mark Ruffalo along with the rest of the cast is incredible, I'm sure it'll receive awards in due time.
