Starring Jessica Biel, who also executive produces, and based on the book by Petra Hammesfahr, The Sinner explores the motives behind an apparently motiveless crime. Cora Tannetti (Biel) has a pleasant life, married to Mason ( Girls’s Christopher Abbott), with whom she also works. They have a son together. So far, so nice … until Cora stabs a man to death during a family day at the beach. Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) is the cop who wants to find out why. “There’s a moment where she starts to question what she knows, and that’s the point where the unreliable narrator becomes very unreliable, even to herself,” Biel told Variety. “She’s now invested in finding the answer, too, because the story she thought was true is just not.” The sixth and final season of Longmire, a contemporary western starring Australian actor Robert Taylor in the title role, begins streaming this week. It was saved after being cancelled by the A&E channel after its third season, so a second chance of another three seasons seems like a reasonably fair shake. Set in Wyoming’s fictional Absaroka county, and based on the Walt Longmire Mysteries by Craig Johnson, last season concluded with Lou Diamond Phillips’s Henry staked to the ground in the desert in mortal peril; the Irish mafia muscling into the local heroin market; the mayor teaming up with Jacob Nighthorse to take the sheriff down; and the prospect of Walt’s property being forfeited in a civil lawsuit and turned into a 36-hole golf course. Hopefully Longmire — the character and the show — gets a fitting finale. Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond Streaming on Netflix from Friday Just as many feel the documentary Hearts of The Great Beyond Jim & Andy: Darkness surpassed its subject, Apocalypse Now, so too may this documentary about the making of Man on the Moon outshine the original. Jim & Andy: The Great Beyond (subtitled Featuring a Very Special, Contractually Obligated Mention of Tony Clifton) shows Jim Carrey’s method acting antics as he portrayed the singular comedian Andy Kaufman in the 1999 film. Carrey says the studio intended never to release the behind-thescenes footage because it made him look like “an asshole”. But I’m willing to bet it will be great. The main thing to know about Personal Shopper (Saturday, 8.30pm, Masterpiece) is that it isn’t the pretext for Kristen Stewart to mince around Paris that it sounds like. Written and directed by Olivier Assayas, it is a ghost story, with psychological thriller elements. Stewart stars as Maureen, a personal shopper for a celebrity named Kyra (Nora von Waldstatten). Maureen’s twin brother has died and either she is receiving messages from him or losing her mind. Another misleading title: A United Kingdom (Thursday, 10.05pm, Masterpiece), that’s nothing to do with Brexit. (It actually has more in common with Eddie Murphy’s Coming to America.) Based on a true story set after World War II, it stars David Oyelowo as Seretse Khama, the heir to the throne of Bechuanaland, who meets and falls in love with Ruth (Rosamund Pike). Gods of Egypt (Saturday, 10pm, More) is a perfect popcorn movie. The story of the contest for power between Nikolaj Coster-Waldau as Horus and Gerard Butler as Set feels fresh; the action choreography is thrilling; the humour is wry. Why didn’t more people like it? Could it be the preceding Exodus: Gods and Kings made people feel like they’d seen it? If so, that’s a shame.
