Secrets come to light in this adaptation of the best-selling book.
Amsterdam in the 17th Century isn’t a regular setting for period drama but makes this two-part adaptation of Jessie Burton’s best-selling novel even more special.
The action centres on young Nella (Anya Taylor-Joy), whose new husband Johannes (Alex Hassell) gives her a wedding present of a doll’s house.
However, Nella is disturbed when the miniaturist, who is creating tiny items to decorate the house, seems able to predict events that are happening in Nella’s own home.
As Nella gradually uncovers the secrets of Johannes and his stern sister Marin (Romola Garai), the family’s sins are threatened with exposure.
