Best TV to Watch/Stream in April: Beasties Doc, ‘Run,’ ‘Mrs. America’
Chances are, no matter how much television you normally watch, you’ve been watching more than usual lately. A lot more. We’re all stuck inside, bored to tears, and there’s only so many times you can watch the same Parks and Recreation reruns. (Except for the Snake Juice episode. That one has infinite replay value.) In the midst of all this bad news, the good news is that new TV shows and highly anticipated premieres continue to arrive with regularity. (At least for now: the Covid-19 pandemic has

HBO has released the first trailer for Derek Cianfrance's limited series adaptation of Wally Lamb's novel I Know This Much Is True. The series stars Mark Ruffalo in dual roles as twin brothers, one of whom suffers from mental illness.

7 Movies Like Marriage Story on Netflix You Should Watch Next

7 Movies Like Marriage Story on Netflix You Should Watch Next
Marriage Story is easily one of the most polarizing movies of last year. This 2019 film that was obviously inspired by the work of 1970s directors, is truly gut wrenching and gripping in a way that most movies are not. Centering around Nicole (Scarlett Johansson) and Charlie (Adam Driver), we see what happens as their marriage breaks up. Unlike a lot of movies that would show us the good times in order to establish their chemistry, Marriage Story does the complete opposite of that. Through a brutal custody/divorce settlement, we are able to see the relationship that once was in this Netflix Original.

At times you might root for Nicole. At other times you might root for Charlie, however, the goal of Marriage Story isn't to take a side. It is really an examination of what happens between two people that, despite being at their worst, never really stop loving one another.

‘Normal People’: Sally Rooney and Lenny Abrahamson Tease an Epic Romance on Hulu — Watch Trailer

‘Normal People’: Sally Rooney and Lenny Abrahamson Tease an Epic Romance on Hulu — Watch Trailer
Sally Rooney sees herself in both characters within her novel, “Normal People,” but don’t make her break it down further than that.

“I feel my psychological state as a child remains a mystery to me now,” Rooney said during a TCA panel for the upcoming Hulu series. “I don’t know why I am the way I am.”

That’s what the writing is for, after all.

“I felt, writing the book, that both characters were a projection of my point of view,” she said. “They both embody aspects of my own psychology. […] The challenge of adapting this for the screen is that they both have introspective qualities.”

To help with that challenge, Rooney turned to Oscar-nominated “Room” director Lenny Abrahamson, who helmed each episode of the 12-episode TV adaptation. Joining Rooney on the panel, along with executive producer Ed Guiney and actors Paul Mescal and Daisy Edgar-Jones, Abrahamson

Soundtracking: Blue Valentine

by Chris Feil

“You and me, you and me. Nobody baby but you and me...”

Ryan Gosling’s Dean breaks a makeout session and produces the romantic gesture lost to our time: a playlist burnt to a cd. It’s the ultimate young love gesture and met in kind with wide-eyed affection by the young woman its meant for, Michelle Williams’ Cindy. He’s chosen a song for them, in the tradition of all romances, one that will belong just to them. Before the soulful murmur of “You and Me” by Penny and the Quarters, Dean acknowledges the cliche of it as quickly as he shrugs it off. They will be different from all those other couples going honoring the ritual, he promises her. They will be special.

Blue Valentine charts the degradation of such romantic fantasies, showing us how painfully average their broken love will become, with music the

Vijay Deverakonda upset with 'Arjun Reddy' critics, calls Twitterati 'Twidiots'

Controversy Vijay is apparently soon going to "school" people on social media with film critic Baradwaj Rangan as his moderator.Priyanka RichiIt seems like the controversy around Vijay Deverakonda’s 2017 film Arjun Reddy is not going to die down anytime soon. Recently, actor Parvathy received praise on social media for pointing out the misogyny in Arjun Reddy in front of Vijay Deverakonda at a round table discussion hosted by Film Companion. The actor explained how the movie glorified toxic masculinity and compared it to Joker, stating that in her opinion, the latter was an example of a film that didn't glorify violence but showed the trajectory of a mentally disturbed character. The discussion soon led to explosions on social media with many applauding Parvathy for speaking her mind and once again pointing out the normalisation of abuse in relationships.

Tiff Review: Riz Ahmed Struggles with Silence in the Intensely Emotional ‘Sound of Metal’

Sound of Metal opens with Riz Ahmed’s Ruben sitting at a drum kit while guitar distortions deafen us. Eventually, Olivia Cooke’s Lou starts screaming as his sticks connect for a steady beat until all hell breaks loose. We’re in this venue with them, the in-close camerawork proving Ahmed’s lessons paid off because he is in a groove and rocking out (not that he needed help on the second part considering his rap career as Riz Mc and one half of Swet Shop Boys). With line drawn tattoos covering his chest, bleach-blonde hair, and that screaming, you’re probably assuming the after show will consist of booze and drugs before the visuals cut to a new day of health shakes and eggs in an Rv. Appearances can be deceiving.

That’s when writer-director Darius Marder rips the rug from under his lead via an incessant ring. A
