SEE, WATCH, GO
3 TITLE SON OUR “SUMMER MUSTS” LIST
1) OCEAN’S 8
How do you make a good franchise even better? Reboot it with an all-female all-star cast. Sandra Bullock steps into the Louboutins of Debbie Ocean (sister to George Clooney’s Danny) to pull off a heist at the Met Gala. The crew she assembles also happens to include your dream BFFs: Cate Blanchett, Rihanna and Mindy Kaling.
You don’t really need an excuse to pour yourself a glass of wine and relax in front of the TV, but this drama gives you the perfect one. The series, based on Stephanie Danler’s page-turner and green-lit by Brad Pitt, follows 22-year-old Tess (Ella Purnell), who lands a job at one of New York’s scene-iest (yes, we made that a word) restaurants just after moving to the city.
3) DEFYING CONVENTION
This summer, the Winnipeg Art Gallery is celebrating women who redefined art in Canada. The exhibition travels back to the Modernist period and features 30 groundbreakers—from Emily Carr to Marion Nelson Hooker—who challenged gender roles.
