13 Reasons Why
drama / Netflix
this controversial drama has been praised and criticised for its handling of teenage suicide, some claiming the depiction is too graphic while others agree with the show’s makers that an unflinching portrayal might help prevent it. Based on a book of the same name, it follows the ‘13 reasons why’ 17-year-old Hannah (Katherine Langford) took her own life, which she explains in several tapes she made for her ‘frenemies’. As we relive their wrongdoings through flashbacks and Hannah’s narration, her friend Clay (Dylan Minette) attempts to uncover the truth. A compelling story, with tough-to-watch scenes. A second series is slated for release on Netflix next year.
