leave the world behind you
Sandra Bullock had success on Netflix in 2018 with the apocalyptic “Bird Box,” and now her co-star Julia Roberts is also taking her chance with an apocalypse movie. In Leave the World Behind, Amanda and her family spend a weekend at a luxury villa, but they don't have much of a good time. First the TV goes off, then there's a herd of deer in the park, then the owners come home with news that the community is about to collapse due to a cyberattack. A mystery thriller that would probably have received more acclaim than “Bird Box” at the time. “Leave the World Behind” is based on the popular book by Rumman Alam and directed by Sam Esmail, the man behind the hit series “The Master.” Robot'. He previously collaborated with Roberts on the equally wonderful “Homecoming.”

So this has to end better than that infamous robbery.
There are no big stars, no evocative synopsis, and no amazing scenes. However, the first season of Someone somewhere It was among the best we saw last year. A small but very beautiful series about some loners and strangers living in a town somewhere in the middle of the United States. Among all these colorful characters is Sam, played by Bridget Everett, who also wrote the series. Troubled by the past, she finds a place and herself again. She produces wonderful slices of life, sometimes funny, sometimes poignant, and always exquisitely beautiful. Season 2 continues on the chosen path, with seven relatively short episodes once again.
