Through the story of an American family, this punchy film from the late '90s attempts to explain the origins of racism and extremism in the United States. It tells the story of Derek (Edward Norton) who, wanting to avenge the death of his father, shot dead by a black dealer, espoused the racist theses of a tiny group of far-right activists and put himself at the service of its leader, a brutal theoretician advocating the supremacy of the white race. These theories will lead him to commit a double murder making his younger brother, Danny, go in a spiral of hatred.

As season 2 of Alta Mar, one of the last Spanish series still running on the platform, ended with all the questions answered, viewers might have thought that the plot would no longer have a sequel. However, season 3 of the series will arrive on August 7. This time, the story turns to Bárbara de Braganza, a young woman who leaves Argentina for Mexico. Eva then joins a mission to bring down a scientist who harbors a deadly virus aboard the ship.

Directed by Rebecca Zlotowski in 2019, Une Fille Facile will be talked about in particular, because we discover the former escort-girl Zahia Dehar as an actress. The young woman is now working in the film industry and even has attracted a good impression of the critics. The pitch? A teenage girl is drawn to her cousin's hedonistic lifestyle when they spend the summer together in Cannes as she gets to know each other and her own values.

The true crime anthology, based on the eponymous podcast by Christopher Goffard, told in its first season about the toxic relationship between Debra and John, played by Connie Britton and Eric Bana. Season 2 of Dirty John will revisit the tragic story of Betty Broderick. Amanda Peet (The Good Wife) and Christian Slater (Mr. Robot) will camp the main opposition of the new episodes. After being cheated on by her husband with his secretary, Betty will do everything to come out on top of the divorce and secure custody of her four children, but Dan, who is a ruthless man and cruel to his wife, will take advantage of the situation. This family drama will end in blood, as any lover of true crime had already guessed.
