Calls is a series of short episodes that are versions of phone calls. You never see anyone’s face, it’s all voice work and a visually engaging screensaver type representation of words, connections, and emotions. It’s streaming on Apple TV+.
Promising Young Woman is a brilliant new treatment of the revenge movie. It’s fresh and funny and barbed and full of heart. A masterwork. Written and directed by Emerald Fennell, the film is available to rent on Prime Video.
The Crown, season 3, has an all new cast but the same royal family we enjoyed getting to know in previous seasons. The switch to older actors in the royal roles is hardly an awareness blip as the new cast takes over with brilliant work all round.
