Showrunner Ellen Rapoport aptly captures the atmosphere of the time and how a handful of iconic men and women somehow fueled a boarding movement that would later be celebrated and revered for decades to come. Surprisingly, the movement also struggles to survive in the divided political arena of the 21st century — sexual freedom, women’s rights, and more. Rapoport doesn’t give the viewer a history lesson here, more like a snapshot in time. The result is engaging, entertaining and often endearing.

The show also does a good job of illustrating what we all know: With wealth comes power. And those who work for the ultra-wealthy often have to abide by special protocols. In that regard, it’s refreshing that Perkins’ performance here is more grounded than her role as another wealthy woman in the film. after party —even though she was very lively there. She elevates Constance into another archetypal role.
