Grazia (UK) - - It’s A Thing -

THE POD­CAST West Cork

The true crime hit of 2018. what to say: ‘It’s Se­rial meets Mid­somer Mur­ders – with lilt­ing Ir­ish ac­cents.’

THE SHOW Di­et­land

A sub­ver­sive com­edy that tar­gets the beauty in­dus­try. what to say: ‘Sarai Walker’s 2015 novel is based on some fairly dated ideas around fat-sham­ing, but this Ama­zon adap­ta­tion is pure re­venge fan­tasy for the #Metoo era.’

THE BOOK Moth­er­hood

Sheila Heti on the de­sire and so­ci­etal ex­pec­ta­tions to pro­cre­ate. what to say: ‘It isn’t re­ally about be­com­ing a par­ent – it’s more about the ten­sion be­tween moth­er­hood and cre­ativ­ity.’

THE MOVIE Ocean’s 8

The spin-off to Steven Soder­bergh’s Ocean’s tril­ogy. what to say: ‘A kick-ass all-fe­male en­sem­ble – shame about the mid­dle-aged male di­rec­tor.’

THE SONG This is Amer­ica

Childish Gambino’s (ie, Don­ald Glover’s) provoca­tive take on the African Amer­i­can ex­pe­ri­ence. what to say:

‘The ware­house-style space in the video re­minds me of Michael Jack­son’s Bad, which, in­ci­den­tally, was di­rected by Scors­ese.’

THE EVENT #bringthenoise

An anti-trump march in Lon­don on 13 July. what to say: ‘I’m tak­ing a fry­ing pan. It’s all about be­ing in­spired by South Amer­ica’s “casse­role protests” and mak­ing as much noise as pos­si­ble.’
