Surface is a thriller/mystery starring Gugu Mbatha-Raw. The first 3 episodes were released on premier day (7/29/22), with more to come weekly. First let me say Surface looks super good. Secondly, it makes me mad as hell that we have to wait weeks to reach the resolution of this story. I am so hooked on this drama.
Jessica Chastain stars in Miss Sloane, a political drama about a powerful Washington lobbyist. The story deals with gun control lobbying, a topic the creators thought would be important in the election. The election turned out differently from what anyone expected, but that’s no reason to stop celebrating what looks like a boffo performance from the women in Miss Sloane.
Free State of Jones is an epic tale of rebellion in Mississippi during the Civil War. It stars Matthew McConaughey. This film caught my eye when I saw it also starred Gugu Mbatha-Raw and Keri Russell. The more I learned about Free State of Jones, the more interested I became. It’s a fascinating story that still reverberates today.
