Series: The White Lotus
This new HBO series, written and directed by Mike White, follows a week of misadventures a group of entitled hotel guests and overworked staff entail, all within the confinements of a luxurious resort in Hawaii. This congregation of wealthy, somewhat obnoxious guests on vacation is undoubtedly satiric, with raving critics claiming it could very well be the comedy of the year.

Film: Nine Days
In a 2020 American supernatural drama film written and directed by Edson Oda, ‘Nine Days’ is an incredible existential story that reveals much about what it truly means to be a good person in a harsh world. The protagonist interviews five unborn souls to determine which of them is deemed worthy of a life on Earth. Riddled with emotion, ‘Nine Days’ is sure to provoke deep thought, leaving you to question your existing perceptions on humanity.

Album: I Want The Door To Open by Lala Lala
London-born, Chicago-based artist Lillie West embraces a new avenue on her third album, expanding her sound from the indie-rock roots engrained in her first two albums in search of a more authentically ‘her’ sound. She openly welcomes change and growth on I Want The Door To Open, with “DIVER” being a standout track, depicting West “swimming towards my new life, dragged in by the undertow” as she navigates through the riptides of life. I Want The Door To Open is available on Spotify.
