Catch up with what's hot on your favourite streaming service with the E-Screen with EB Inglis.
This week, EB recommends the 2021 reboot of Gossip Girl (feeling old yet?), an intense marriage drama and Sandra Bullock's latest movie which sees her put her life back together again after serving time for a violent crime.
Gossip Girl on Showmax
Who can forget the iconic Gossip Girl series that followed the lives of Blair Waldorf and Serena van der Woodsen?
Well, in case you haven't heard... there's a modern reboot of the series that focuses on the next generation of New York private school teens about to start the school year at Constance St Jude's.
But this is 2021, and social surveillance has become a very different beast in the nine years since the original blogger’s website went dark.
Despite the stigma attached to most reboots, this one seems to have garnered favourable reviews and you can binge-watch season one on Showmax.
SCENES FROM A MARRIAGE on Showmax
A remake of the iconic 1973 Swedish miniseries, this HBO drama stars Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain and Golden Globe winner Oscar Isaac in an intimate examination of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage and divorce, as seen through the eyes of a contemporary American couple.
The rollercoaster of emotions might hit closer to home if you’ve ever experienced what the characters are going through in this limited series and you can stream it now on Showmax.
THE UNFORGIVABLE on Netflix
Sandra Bullock plays Ruth Slater who was recently released from prison for a violent crime.
The hometown she tries to go back to, however, will not forgive her for what she’s done and they definitely will not let her forget. Her only hope at peace is to reconnect with her little sister that she had to leave behind.
But that in itself is also another major obstacle that she would need to overcome. As the story unfolds, you realize why she had to do what she did all those years ago.
