Series: The Girl from Plainville

Elle Fanning goes from strength to strength in her starring role as Michelle Carter in the true-crime drama-thriller The Girl From Plainville. The series follows the real-life events of the “texting-suicide” case of Michelle Carter and Conrad Roy III. The show explores their relationship, from their initial meeting on family trips to Florida, to the events leading up to the suicide of Conrad, and eventual unprecedented legal case. The Girl From Plainville is available on Stan.

Film: The Innocent

French comedy The Innocent is a fresh and funny film that explores the life of ex-cons and the baggage they carry with them. Abel’s mother, a prison drama teacher, is about to marry a man in prison but he is not convinced that his new step-father has totally rehabilitated. With the help of his friend he sets out to protect his mother from a man he believes doesn’t have her best interests at heart. But his perspective could change after he meets his step-father to be. The Innocent is available in select cinemas.

Series: Significant Others

Significant Others is an Australian family drama-thriller series from the ABC. The series follows the extended family of Sarah, a single mother of two, who mysteriously disappears. Her dysfunctional family is dragged back into her crumbling home, and struggles to put the pieces of her disappearance together whilst also contending with their own differences. Significant Others is available on ABC iView.

Album: Multitudes Fiest

Multitudes is the sixth album from Canadian artist Fiest. Multitudes is the quietest album to-date sung by Fiest’s smokey and sultry voice. The songs have the same melodic sound that is so typical of Fiest, but the album has more ballads than the usual pop songs. Multitudes came after a difficult period of time for Fiest, and so is deeply personal and tinged with longing. Multitudes is available on Spotify and Bandcamp.
