Premise: A young woman has been forced to marry an older man with dark secrets. She falls in love with her teacher and the two plot to be together. Then a mysterious “woman in white” starts revealing secrets that will tear the local community apart.
How excited should you be? If you love well-crafted period pieces or have a ravenous appetite for Halloween content, then you should definitely check this out. While many period thrillers have lacked solid pacing this year (looking at you “Picnic at Hanging Rock”), this succeeds as the streaming equivalent of a page-turner.
Any reasons to be skeptical? It definitely has a slightly low-budget look to it and doesn’t have any major stars. But that’s typical for these PBS period dramas.
Will everyone be talking about this? Probably not.
You can watch the trailer for “The Woman in White” below.
