It’s safe to say I have watched more TV in this past year than ever due to being home more in the evenings and barely leaving my house to go socialize like I used to in the days of yore (pre-covid) :P. I’ve been catching up on both current shows and movies but also ones that I missed when they came around the first time. Here are a few favorites from this month…
1) Really Love (on Netflix) is a visually stunning indie that follows the romance of a rising artist and a law student and their everyday growth and struggles in their relationship.
2) The Donut King (on Hulu) is a story about the American Dream and how one man helped hundreds of Cambodian refugees get a new start in America. It’s happy, sad, and connects with me so much as a child of immigrants.
3) The Morning Show (on Apple TV) – I was late to this and never watched it when the first season came out. So I just caught up recently in time for the new season. The acting is incredible and the commentary on power in the media feels very current. Season 2 just dropped on Friday, and so far it’s GOOD…
4) Cinderella (on Amazon Prime) – Alright, this one didn’t get the greatest media reviews, but I loved it. I have always hated princess movies because of their stereotypical nature that never felt empowering for women and girls. While Cinderella has been retold numerous times, this was a nice spin I wasn’t expecting and it spreads a lot of great messages I can get behind.
5) Worth (on Netflix) – I watched this the week approaching the 20th anniversary of 9/11. Because 9/11 had such a big impact on my life, I enjoyed this look into another side of the stories that I didn’t think about…how the victims’ families were compensated. It’s based on the true story of the lawyers who were in charge of the fund for victims’ families and a powerful look at how we value a life.
