Television: A League of Their Own
This American sports comedy drama follows the lives and careers of a team of all women baseball players in 1940s America. Based off the 1992 film staring Tom Hanks, this series explores the realities of discrimination, sports fever and triumph to present a thoughtful and hilarious exploration of America’s love with baseball and the women who made it their own.

In a French banlieue the tragic killing of young boy by a police officer ignites an all out war in this action thriller with socio-political overtones. The brothers of the slain boy, one a police officer, one community leader and another a drug dealer are all forced to reckon with moral choices in the aftermath of their tragedy.

Television: The Old Man
Based on the 2017 novel of the same name, this series follows an off the grid CIA operative who is hunted down by the very agency he used to work for. Starring Jeff Bridges, John Lithgow and Alia Shawkat, The Old Man is an action thriller not to be missed.
The Old Man is out now on Disney+. Watch the trailer here.
Music: The Will to Live, Titus Andronicus
Titus Andronicus’s 7th album is their best in years. The New Jersey punk band comes through with fiery vocals from Patrick Stickles and a mix of sounds from straight punk rock to the epic ballads they are known for. With a touch of Springsteen, this album lives up to some of their best work.
