You know that thing about April show­ers? Well, it’s real, and you’re go­ing to want a good book (or movie or TV show) to get through it. Here’s how to spend your time in­side this month


Nine years af­ter Ted Kennedy’s death, the story of one of Camelot’s dark­est hours fi­nally gets its cin­e­matic treat­ment. Star­ring Ja­son Clarke, Kate Mara, and Bruce Dern, it prom­ises to be a sus­pense­ful ride — es­pe­cially for Democrats ap­proach­ing the midterms.
