Each month I find TV shows, movies, and events to look forward to.
The Princess streaming on Hulu.
“A beautiful, strong-willed princess refuses to wed the cruel sociopath to whom she is betrothed, and is kidnapped and locked in a remote tower of her father’s castle. With her scorned, vindictive suitor intent on taking her father’s throne, the princess must protect her family and save the kingdom.”
The Earth reaches Aphelion, the point furthest from the sun in its orbit.
Girl in the Picture Streaming on Netflix.
“A young mother’s mysterious death and her son’s subsequent kidnapping blow open a decades-long mystery about the woman’s true identity, and the murderous federal fugitive at the center of it all.”
They Drown Our Daughters by Katrina Monroe on shelves.
The Anarchists streaming on HBO Max.
“The six-part docuseries, “The Anarchists,” tells the story of Jeff Berwick, a Canadian entrepreneur who launched a conference in Acapulco, Mexico, to promote anarchy, which drew in a group of libertarians, fugitives and families looking to “unschool” their children.”
“Part modern gothic, part ghost story, They Drown Our Daughters explores the depths of motherhood, identity, and the lengths a woman will go to hold on to both.”
Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons streaming on Hulu.
“The three-part docuseries, “Victoria’s Secret: Angels and Demons,” tells the story of Les Wexner, the controversial former chairman of L Brands, the owner of the Victoria’s Secret brand. The docuseries delves into Wexner’s close friendship and business partnership with the late convicted sex offender, Jeffrey Epstein, and how it tied into his oversight of the lingerie brand.”
Where the Crawdads Sing in Theaters.
“From the best-selling novel comes a captivating mystery. Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the “Marsh Girl” haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.”
Conjunction of the Moon and Jupiter, which will appear close to each other in the night sky. No equipment will be needed for this stargazing opportunity.
The Daughter of Doctor Moreau by Silvia Moreno-Garcia on shelves.
“Moreno-Garcia shifts through genres, blends, and reimagines them through a Mexican lens, from gothic romance to vampire noir and beyond. The author’s latest gives a new take on the Island of Doctor Moreau, set in nineteenth-century Mexico. Moreno-Garcia’s lush worldbuilding and cultural perspective make familiar material feel wholly fresh and gripping.”
Nope in theaters.
“Residents in a lonely gulch of inland California bear witness to an uncanny, chilling discovery.”
The Most Hated Man on the Internet streaming on Netflix.
“The Most Hated Man on the Internet” docuseries tells the story of a mother’s mission against the “King of Revenge Porn,” who posted nude photos of her daughter online in the 2010s.”
