YOUR SERIES & YOUR FILMS

ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW THIS WEEK

 

 

your series

Mare of Easttown, by Brad Ingelsby, directed by Craig Zobel

 

Synopsis

She comes limping in. Nicknamed Lady Hawk because of a basketball hoop that won the city a championship, Mare is a battered female cop. She couldn’t solve an investigation into the disappearance of a teenage girl ten years earlier and in her personal life, she’s a broken woman.

Mare lives with her alcoholic mother, talks very little to her daughter and gets angry with everyone.

At the request of the girl’s mother, the investigation resumes, aided by a police officer with a good reputation.

Your series

I had already started to write about this series but it ended yesterday and until the end is worth watching.

It is the series of the moment.

Broadcast on HBO in the US, and in France on Canal Plus and OCS, Mare of Easttown is about grief, reconstruction and truth.

Kate Winslet, who co-produced the series, plays the title role and it’s a pleasure to rediscover her in this leading role, that of a woman for whom nothing is of interest except her grandson and her work. She throws herself into it to forget the drama she has lived through.

The actress will certainly receive awards this year. The script, the dialogues, the direction, everything fits perfectly with the universe of this story of filial love (whatever the characters), violence and despair.

If all the actors are sensational, I discovered an extraordinary actress, Julianne Nicholson, (who is not Jack’s daughter as I thought).

 

About a season 2, Kate Winslet told TV Line (source CNews):

” I feel like I’m in mourning. It was an absolutely wonderful role… There’s something very addictive about Mare, because she’s so vulgar and touching and brilliant and so real at the same time. You know what I mean? I loved being in her shoes (…) . Mare is a middle-aged woman, I will be 46 in October. I think that’s why people connected with this character the way they did, because she’s unfiltered. She’s a flawed woman with a body and a face that moves like a body and a face should move at her age. We all need that. ”

Indeed, the actress insisted that there would be no visual retouching, whether it was her stomach or her wrinkles.

Go for it !

BLACKSPACE, BY ANAT GAFN & SAHAR SHAVIT

Synopsis

In a small town in Israel, on the day of Yom Hazmaut (Independence Day) while the high school seniors are attending the ceremony, four unicorn-masked individuals burst in and start shooting at random at the students and four of them are found dead.

A policeman, a former student of the school, goes to the scene. After the intervention, three Palestinians are found on the roofs and are immediately accused. But the weapons have disappeared. The investigation then turns to the students.

 

Your series (8 episodes)

A breathtaking and thrilling Israeli series, Blackspace will not let go of you once you start it.

The hero, Rami Davidi, incredible Guri Alfi, is a man who lost an eye when he was harassed by the students of the same high school twenty-five years earlier. His past resurfaces as he leads the investigation and he works day and night to find the culprits of this massacre, which is reminiscent of those perpetrated in the United States.

Post-traumatic symptoms plunge him back into this traumatic event, and Rami Davidi no longer knows how to live outside of his work.

This series allows its authors to address violence, bullying, injustice and misogyny present in Israeli society.

Blackspace can be seen now on NETFLIX.

Your series

THE KOMINSKY METHOD, BY CHUCK LORRE

 

Synopsis

Sandy Kominsky and Norman Newslander are two inseparable friends. But Norman dies and Sandy has to learn to live without him.

Her daughter Mindy, who helps her in her acting school, has met Martin, a man a little bit younger than her father, and she decides to marry him.

Sandy’s ex-wife then arrives.

 

Your series

Without Alan Arkin, the actor who played Norman Newlander in the first two seasons, I expected the worst.

Norman was my favorite character. The dialogues full of Woody Allen humor hit the spot every time in this feel-good series.

But Michael Douglas rose to the challenge. This time, he carries alone this season, more moving than the two previous ones, which tells us, as always, about the dream of becoming an actor, of being chosen for a movie, of living from his passion and of reaching fame.

This season is the last one and despite the heaviness of some scenes, it is worth the detour.

Currently on NETFLIX.

With Kathleen Turner, as well as Sarah Baker and Lisa Edelstein, Emily Osment, Graham Rogers, Ann-Margret, Jay Leno, Patti LaBelle, Ashleigh LaThorpe, as well as Jane Seymour and Paul Reiser.
