A Small Light: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (1) Matthew Gilbert Boston Globe It’s a valuable story, and it’s told with grace. May 26, 2023 Full Review A Small Light: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (2) Judy Berman TIME Magazine A bracing, emotional but not excessively sentimental account of a regular woman’s resistance to fascism. May 5, 2023 Full Review A Small Light: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (3) Dan Einav Financial Times Despite a misleadingly melodramatic trailer, the series is careful to emphasise the revealing or intimate moments between the terror, bravery and brutality. Rated: 4/5 May 3, 2023 Full Review A Small Light: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (4) Rachel Wagner Rachel's Reviews (YouTube) An underappreciated series that deserves more attention. Well acted, well directed and I love that they focused on Miep's story Jan 8, 2024 Full Review A Small Light: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (5) Mira Fox The Forward Highlighting non-Jews in the Holocaust is a delicate matter, and A Small Light is coming out at a time in which Holocaust revisionism is on the rise...without the Jews in question, perhaps we would never have heard of Miep and Jan. Rated: A- Aug 2, 2023 Full Review A Small Light: Limited Series | Rotten Tomatoes (6) Joanne Laurier World Socialist Web Site A Small Light is powerfully and artistically done, with the hearts and minds of everyone involved clearly engaged. Rated: 4/4 Jun 27, 2023 Full Review Read all reviews

Tony P This was hand's down the best series of 2023! It had awesome writing, great performances by everyone, and not to mention a story even though it's very sad will keep you on the edge of your seats/chairs! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 05/06/24 Full Review A M Well done , the better side of humanity stepping up when most are unwilling to intervene & risk everything. Yes there are truly amazing people that often don't look for attention but are doing God's work. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/07/24 Full Review Max W Chorei. Que obra!Apesar de tratar de uma história muito triste e pesada, também houve leveza na abordagem... Tendo todo o peso e a carga dramática de tirar o fôlego, mas também ação e comédia na medida certa! Tudo bem desenvolvido. Desde a inovação de contar a história pela perspectiva da Miep, quanto aos personagens e o enredo que mantém a fidelidade dos fatos. Magnífico! Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 03/14/24 Full Review Joseph R Powerful. Moving. Well written and produced and acted. Ive watched it 3 times. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/25/24 Full Review ava s I love this show so much that's all I have to say Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/17/24 Full Review Edward Z The show was sad but one of the best I've ever watched. It shows what actually happened in our past and explains how hard it was back then. Rated 5/5 Stars • Rated 5 out of 5 stars 01/06/24 Full Review Read all reviews
