Kathryn Hahn gives a career-best performance as a columnist excavating the traumas of her past to provide hard-won advice to her legion of anguished followers. Based on the book by bestselling author Cheryl Strayed and produced by Hello Sunshine – the team responsible for The Morning Show and Little Fires Everywhere – the only advice you’ll need is how to watch Tiny Beautiful Things online, which you explain for you below.

Kathryn Hahn gives a career-best performance as a columnist excavating the traumas of her past.

Adapted by Liz Tigelaar from Strayed’s book of the same name, Tiny Beautiful Things finds Clare Pierce (Hahn) at a crossroads. She’s despised by her teenage daughter Rae (Tanzyn Crawford), her writing career is going nowhere, and she spends couples therapy exchanging recriminations with her husband Danny (Welcome to Chippendales’ Quentin Plair) about their non-existent sex life.

She’s understandably dumbfounded, then, when an old friend encourages her to take over his life advice column. Writing anonymously as "Dear Sugar", it becomes the therapeutic means by which she starts to process her own traumas, exploring her difficult adolescence and the raw grief of her mother’s death. In mining her own past experiences, she’s able to help her readers – and herself – heal and move on.

Also starring Merritt Wever (Godless, Nurse Jackie) as Clare’s mother and The Wild’s Sarah Pidgeon as Clare’s younger self, Tiny Beautiful Things is a funny, tender drama series anchored by a powerhouse performance from Hahn. And, as we explain below, you can binge-watch all eight episodes online now from anywhere.

How to save money on Disney+

While there's no longer a Disney Plus free trial to speak of, the Disney Plus price offers great value and is already cheaper than competing streaming services like Netflix. Yet you can get more bang for your buck when you sign up for an annual subscription and get 15% off the monthly price. Yes, you have to splash a wad of cash initially, but with so much content to get stuck into, we very much doubt you'll run out of things to watch before your year is up. You're looking at $109.99/£79.90/AU$139.99 for a 12-month membership (opens in new tab).

If your interests are farther reaching (and you're in the US), then we'd seriously recommend the fantastic value Disney Plus bundle package. It adds Hulu and ESPN Plus to your subscription price, with the Hulu element opening up a world of more adult-focused content, including Hulu Originals like Extraordinary, Only Murders in the Building, How I Met Your Father, History of the World Part II and The Great. Meanwhile, ESPN Plus brings tonnes of exclusive live sport, highlights and documentaries. The combined ad-supported bundle costs just $12.99 per month (opens in new tab).

What else should I know about Disney+?

Tiny Beautiful Things is just the latest in a string of highly-anticipated releases exclusive to the platform, including The Mandalorian, Obi-Wan Kenobi, She-Hulk: Attorney at Law, Ms. Marvel (opens in new tab) and Werewolf By Night. Plus, there's plenty more on the way, such as Secret Invasion, X-Men-97 and Loki season 2, all set to arrive in the coming weeks and months.

You'll also find National Geographic documentaries, Disney and Pixar classics, the entire Star Wars saga and every season of The Simpsons.

The streaming service has apps for iOS and Android (of course), and is available to watch online via the likes of Amazon Fire TV Stick, PS4, Xbox One and Roku streaming devices.

Tiny Beautiful Things is available on the platform thanks to the new Star on Disney Plus that most global markets get to enjoy, which has seen the amount of content available through Disney Plus more than double, with a particular eye to shows grown-ups are going to enjoy. 

Some of the best Star on Disney Plus shows include The Dropout, Snowfall, Only Murders in the Building, and Dopesick. And parents won’t have to worry about their kids accidentally seeing inappropriate content, as Star includes a slew of parental control features to ensure the service stays as family-friendly as ever.

It's available in the UK, most of Europe, and other select markets like Australia and New Zealand - but not in the US, where the media giant's Hulu service already has very similar ground covered.
