TV show: The Righteous Gemstones 

Set in South Carolina, this television series tells the story of a televangelist widow and his three children. Hilarious and sometimes ludicrous, Danny McBride’s creation is the perfect show for anyone looking for a funny, out-there comedy.

Watch on Foxtel.

Film: Hive

This historical drama shines a light on the tragedy of war, and in particular, its impact on women and children who have lost their loved ones. Cleverly named after the main character Fahrije (Yllka Gashi) and her husband’s honey-making business, this movie explores Fahrije’s struggle to make ends meet after losing her husband in the Kosovo War.

Inspiring, heartbreaking and moving, this movie is a gripping tale of rebuilding life after tragedy.

TV Series: Muster Dogs 

Muster dogs is a perfect light-hearted and heartwarming show for a rainy week.  The four-episode series follows the stories of five puppies on a quest to become muster dogs. Featuring beautiful scenery and landscapes, this show highlights the captivating stories of people who live on the land, along with the unbreakable bond between a dog and its owner.

Watch on ABC iview.

Album: caroline caroline

The debut, self-titled album from UK band caroline makes a strong impression. A clear distinction from radio pop hits, their post-rock songs are filled with beautiful sounds and strong instrumentals.

Dissonant at times and other times incredibly elegant and peaceful, caroline‘s long songs encourage you to slow down to pause and reflect.

Listen on Apple Music.
