Other Favourite Stories of 2021

In order to complete the recap of 2021, I still want to share with you my other favourite stories of last year, which basically are the TV series and films I enjoyed watching the most. Despite books being the stars of this tiny blog, I also like spending my free time watching various stories unfold on a screen. I feel that 2021 was scarcer than usual when it comes to new TV shows and films, probably because of the pandemic. Thus, the following list is undeniably short.

 

Mare of Easttown

In the limited series Mare of Easttown, Kate Winslet magnificently plays detective Mare, who is investigating the murder of a young woman. Although this is a crime drama, it truly shines when the focus is on Mare’s personal and family problems.

 

Squid Game

Squid Game, a South Korean TV series on Netflix, is not for those who are squeamish about seeing blood on screen. A group of people accept to risk their lives, while playing children’s games, in order to win a huge sum of money. Being heavily indebted, they feel that they have no other solution left. It’s interesting to learn more about the characters’ backstories.

 

Katla

A mystery-drama mixed with science fiction elements, Katla is a TV series set in Iceland. One year after the eruption of the subglacial volcano Katla, people covered in ash start to mysteriously appear in the town of Vík. The few inhabitants left and a couple of visitors have to come to terms with their past as they uncover what is afoot.

 

The Dig

Set in 1939, close to the beginning of the Second World War, The Dig is a charming film starring Carey Mulligan and Ralph Fiennes, whose performances are flawless. In order to discover what the burial mounds in her rural estate hide, Edith Pretty hires a self-taught excavator, Basil Brown.
