ALL YOU WANT TO KNOW ABOUT  FILMS & SERIES IN THEATERS & AT HOME

REVIEWS ON JUNE 1ST

 

Obi Wan Kenobi, Hossein Amini, Joby Harold

Direction : Deborah Chow

 

Synopsis

The Jedi Order has been destroyed and a Sith-led Galactic Empire has taken the place of the Republic.

One of the last surviving Jedi, Obi-Wan Kenobi is hiding on the desert planet Tatooine to watch over young Luke Skywalker, son of his former friend Anakin.

 

About the series

Spin-off of the Star Wars saga, this series shows us the facet of this discreet hero, played by Ewan McGregor, but with a crucial role in the development of the Jedis’ potential.

In charge of looking after Luke Skywalker, who has been placed in a family on Tatooine, and indirectly of Leia, adopted by the Organa royal family, he is plagued by the guilt of having failed Anakin, whom he believes to be dead during their last battle.

So he lives, works on the line and tries to be forgotten.

This is of course without counting on a bounty hunter, the fearsome Reva Sevander (known as the Third Sister) played by Moses Ingram seen previously in The Queen’s Gambit and nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Best Supporting Actress.

The young princess Leia, played by the young actress Vivien Lyra Blair, who is to be reckoned with from now on, is kidnapped during one of her multiple escapades and used as bait to capture Obi Wan Kenobi.

The adventures can then begin. After “The Mandalorian”, “Obi Wan Kenobi”, played by the great actor Ewan MGregor, is a good omen!

Stranger Things season 4, by the Duffer brothers

 

Synopsis

It’s been six months since the battle of Starcourt that brought terror and destruction to Hawkins. Still reeling, our friends find themselves separated for the first time – and high school life isn’t helping. It’s at this vulnerable moment that a new supernatural threat emerges, and with it, a terrible mystery that could be the key to ending the horrors of the upside-down world.

 

Season 4 / Part I

Remember the name of the DUFFERS brothers. In just a few days, since the launch of their fourth season on May 27, they have generated over 235 million views worldwide.

The longer episodes are real tributes to the 80’s, (and indirectly to Spielberg’s adventure films), to horror films (we think of Stephen King, of “The Exorcist”), and plunges us into the difficult world of adolescence, and of reconstruction after a drama.

It is about love, resilience, sexual quest, brotherhood/sorority but also about violence and the cold war (finally always current).

This final season is even more successful than the others because of its choral narrative and its meticulous editing.

The characters are more fleshed out and, this is the magic of sagas, we see them evolve, change, a bit like the heroes of the novel “Harry Potter”, a real success of adaptation with great characters .

To see then!

First part of the season 4 right now on Netflix. Second part on July 1st!

 

 

Heartstopper, Euros Lyn

Synopsis

On the first day of school, Charlie Spring (Joe Locke), a reserved young boy, falls in love with his tablemate, jock Nick Nelson (Kit Connor). If Charlie is openly gay, everyone thinks Nick is straight. But the friendship he develops with Charlie leads him to question his sexual orientation.

A committed director

From episode to episode, this series gradually breaks away from the clichés of the teenage love story that it foreshadowed.

Behind the rather expected scenes of first meeting and misunderstandings, “Heartstopper” draws a realistic and fair representation of what it is to be 15 years old in the England of 2021, when you are a boy, and you love a boy.

No strong dramatic intensity, no great declaration of love or violent scene.

The plot is based on a series of micro-dramas that seem all the more powerful because they stand out against a rather peaceful daily life.

Thus, if homosexuality is apparently accepted by everyone, there are still less visible and more insidious forms of harassment, micro-aggressions that the characters suffer from but which they can also talk about.

A young girl making her gender transition and having to change high schools, the violence of a homophobic comment on social networks, the feeling of abandonment when a group of friends is reunited, or the anxious wait when the chosen one of our heart “is writing…” on Instagram,… so many events with different stakes but to which the director Euros Lyn confers a strong emotional charge by filming them at the level of teenagers.

Very good young actors until then little known carry dialogues sometimes a little demonstrative. Olivia Colman, Nick’s mother in the series, is excellent, as usual, despite her three scenes and ten lines.

A series that goes far beyond the simple tenderness to shake up some of the codes of the genre.

Let’s hope that it is the precursor of more complex and accurate romances.

By Deborah.

On Netflix now.
