Stateless: Season 1 (2020)



Critic Consensus: Stateless has great performances and good intentions, but its harrowing real-life tale is undermined by its underdeveloped characterization of the refugee experience.

All Critics (42) | Top Critics (23)

It's a fascinating story and Strahovski, so persuasive as a conflicted wife in "The Handmaid's Tale," is phenomenal here.

"Stateless" is consumed by an extraordinary exception instead of confronting the ongoing disenfranchisement toward displaced detainees.

July 9, 2020 | Rating: B- | Full Review…

July 8, 2020 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

A masterfully told, forcefully acted nightmare about life in a dirty, bureaucratically impacted limbo.

July 2, 2020 | Full Review…

Stateless is well-made with genuinely committed performances.

November 2, 2020 | Full Review…
