19 I May Destroy You

BBC/HBO 2020


A genre-bending tour de force that was written, co-directed by, and starred Michaela Coel as a rising young author whose life and career are rent asunder as she realizes she was drugged and raped.

I May Destroy You is at times harrowing, at others unnervingl­y funny and odd, and as much about the writing process — and the stories we invent about ourselves to help work through problems — as it is about the trauma that Coel’s Arabella has to learn to live with. A singular, mesmerizin­g limited series.
