Since I last posted about TV and movies, I watched 2 shows that I think are worth sharing.
Little Fires Everywhere. 4/5
*SPOILER ALERT* Based on a novel, Little Fires Everywhere stars Reese Witherspoon and Kerry Washington. The story is set in a small town in Ohio in 1997/1998 and follows Elena Richardson (Witherspoon), a wealthy journalist and Mia Warren (Washington), a single mom and newcomer to the town. The women’s lives are intertwined as Mia’s mysterious past is unfolds.
The story was so gripping and does a good job of acknowledging racial issues, but I did have a problem with the whole situation with the baby at the end. It seemed so unrealistic for Bebe to break into the McCollough’s home and then get the child on an international flight without a passport.
Space Force. 2/5
I am only giving Space Force one point for Steve Carell and another for Lisa Kudrow. I was so excited to watch this because I am such a huge fan of both actors, but unfortunately I was let down. The comedy (if you can call it that) sort of falls flat and the story has no real direction. It’s slow and overall disappointing.
