Craving a story unlike any other? Have the kids gone to bed and you’ve finally got your remote control back? You have no children and you think that Disney+ is it a platform where only the little ones or families can find something interesting to watch? In this new study we will show you how also in October the streaming service will be able to satisfy everyone’s tastes and preferenceseven the older ones. Stories of destroyed worlds, of tragedies that upset and perhaps unite families, of unsuspected murderers and of great loves that go through time always finding something new to say. Here are four titles – three TV series and a romantic comedy – not to be missedwhat they tell and with which beloved actors and actresses.
The Walking Dead, the end of one era and the beginning of another
After 11 extraordinarily successful seasons, one of the most iconic stories of our era, about which mountains of words have been said and written, comes to a close. An ending which, however, is not an end. In the last 8 episodes of The Walking Dead (streamed every Monday through November 21) an even greater force comes upon every single member of every community. With Commonwealth flags flying at Hilltop, Alexandria and Oceanside, there’s no time for those on the road to strategize. It’s a race to stay alive and get those still living in the Commonwealth out before Hornsby can exact his revenge. Who will make it? Fortunately, not a few, because as early as next year a whole series of spin-offs will continue the stories of characters we loved today and yesterday, including Rick Grimes!
The great return of Jeremy Allen White in The Bear
The former star of Shameless Jeremy Allen White is back with a series that will make you smile and cry at the same time. The Bear, already available with all 8 episodes of the first season, tells the story of Carmen ‘Carmy’ Berzatto (Allen White), a young chef who returns home to Chicago to manage the family sandwich shop after a heartbreaking death in the family. Far from the comforts and life he was used to, Carmy has to deal with family problems, the harsh realities of running a small business and dealing with hostile employees who often go their own way. But, day after day, he realizes that the work to run the restaurant goes hand in hand with what he is doing on himself, realizing that sometimes the family, even the most over the top of all, end up choose it.
Candy: Death in Texas, the true crime series about a story of blood that shocked America
Candy Montgomery is a housewife and mother who has done everything right: she married a good man, had two children and settled in a nice house in the suburbs where she regularly attends the parish. But as the pressure to conform grows unbearable within her, transgression becomes her necessity and her behaviors yearn for a little freedom, with deadly results. Candy: Death in Texascreated by Robin Veith and Nick Antosca (The Act), tells in 5 episodes one of the criminal stories that America remembers with the most horror, that of the Texan housewife (played by a surprising Jessica Biel) who was convicted in 1980 of the ax murder of her neighbor Betty Gore (Emmy nominee Melanie Lynskey). A shocking and well-written true crime series that can count on a stellar cast: in addition to Biel and Lynskey, the drama also stars Timothy Simons, Pablo Schreiber and Raúl Esparza.
Rosaline, or Romeo & Juliet from another point of view
From October 14, Disney + offers a original movie which will lead you to have another point of view on one of the most famous tragedies of all time: Juliet & Romeo Of William Shakespeare is seen from the eyes of… Rosaline. In the film by Karen Maine, already in the directing team of the Starstruck series, the all-encompassing love story of Juliet (Isabela Merced) e Romeo (Kyle Allen) is opposed by Rosaline (Kaitlyn Dever), formerly owned by Romeo: the girl does not resign herself to having lost her place in the heart of the young Montecchi, and will do everything to try to get him back into her arms, in spite of Capuleti. Rosaline is a project born about ten years ago: the role ended up a Kaitlyn Dever (these days in theaters with Ticket to Paradise, even before in the series Dopesick also on Disney+) was originally intended for Keira Knightley, but in 2014, for a moment, it seemed that Felicity Jones was also interested. The part of Juliet instead had been proposed to Hailee Steinfeld and Lily Collins.
There was therefore much faith in this feature film, which is based on the novel “When You Were Mine” by Rebecca Serle, published in Italy with the title “Me, Romeo & Juliet“: the peculiarity of the adaptation is that it takes the story back to Shakespeare’s time, instead of setting it up again in the present day as happens in the book! The result is funny and unsettling.
