Hulu round up 2020
Hulu is a very underrated streaming service, it has very interesting and varied content with a quality that beats Netflix; However it’s lack of success may be because of its exclusivity, since it’s only available in the US and Canada.
This week, Hulu has been uploading teasers and trailers for their upcoming 2020 T.V Shows, and here are the ones we are most excited about!
Little Fires Everywhere
“Based on Celeste Ng’s 2017 bestseller, Little Fires Everywhere follows the intertwined fates of the picture-perfect Richardson family and an enigmatic mother and daughter who upend their lives. The story explores the weight of secrets, the nature of art and identity, the ferocious pull of motherhood – and the danger in believing that following the rules can avert disaster.”
I recommend reading the book as it is a beautiful-yet-sad story and an easy read. From the trailer itself already you can see there are a few differences from the original story (which always happens in adaptations) so whether you want to read it before or after catching the series might depend on wanting to go into the story with a blank mind or knowing the ending. Nevertheless I’m happy Resse is becoming the new Oprah of books and managing to produce all these beautiful stories.
“After 5 heartbreaks…it’s finally time to face the music. High Fidelity premieres February 14th, only on Hulu.
A departure from Nick Hornby’s 1995 novel and beloved 2000 film, Hulu’s High Fidelity centers on Rob (Zoë Kravitz, who also serves as an executive producer), a female record store owner in the rapidly gentrified neighborhood of Crown Heights, Brooklyn who revisits past relationships through music and pop culture, while trying to get over her one true love. High Fidelity also stars Da’Vine Joy Randolph, David H. Holmes, Jake Lacy, and Kingsley Ben-Adir.”
Another book adaptation! So happy to see Zoë getting more work as she is a terrific actor and just beautiful to watch. Funnily enough, her mother, Lisa Bonet starred in the film adaptation from 2000.
“A first look at Hulu’s new drama series based on Sally Rooney’s best-selling novel. Normal People is an exquisite, modern love story about how one person can unexpectedly change another person’s life and about how complicated intimacy can be. It follows Marianne and Connell over several years, as they embark on an on-again/off-again romance that starts at school and continues through college, both testing their relationship as they explore different versions of themselves. Coming Spring 2020.”
This YA story is a coming of age narrative that is enjoyable if you keep in mind it is meant for a young audience. This book which created a lot of buzz during its publication year, was one of my favorite books from 2018, Rooney’s ability to speak about young love reflects our current preoccupation with appearance over vulnerability.
I am aware I may be saying this about 90% of the stories I feature in my blog but I truly recommend reading this book.
“The much-anticipated series from Oscar-nominated writer Tony McNamara (THE FAVOURITE), The Great debuts on Hulu Friday, May 15. The Great is a satirical comedic drama that follows the unlikely rise and spectacular reign of feminist trailblazer Catherine the Great, the longest running female leader in Russian history. The series stars Elle Fanning as Catherine, Nicholas Hoult, Phoebe Fox, Adam Godley, Gwilym Lee, Charity Wakefield, Douglas Hodge and Sacha Shawan.”
Now, I’m really really really excited about this show! I’m obsessed with Elle Fanning and Dakota therefore I watch everything they are in and you will see a lot of them in here. Plus, Tony freaking McNamara! The Favourite is a film I watch religiously and I cannot wait to see McNamara’s sense of humour in this series.
