Here are some highlights for the week of March 8-14:

Netflix Streaming

On My Block – Season 3 (March 11)

The critically acclaimed young adult series On My Block is back for a third season. I have no idea how this slipped under my radar, but I’m excited that there will now be three full seasons for me to binge.

Critics love the program for its smart writing, diverse cast, and focus on real life obstacles to coming of age. They also heap praise on the young cast. On My Block is now On My List.

Looking for more coming of age drama? Try the movie Love, Simon (available to rent on Amazon), or the Netflix series The Society.

Lost Girls (March 13)

Lost Girls is based on a non-fiction book by author Robert Kolker. Amy Ryan stars as a mother searching for her missing daughter and discovering other related disappearances. Her search pushes law enforcement to investigate her discoveries.

I don’t want to give more away. The book received quite a bit of critical acclaim and the movie has a good cast, including Thomasin McKenzie and Gabriel Byrne in addition to Ryan.

Looking for more movies based on real events? Try Selma (available to rent on Amazon) or the remarkable 12 Years a Slave (available to rent on Amazon)

Netflix DVD Releases

Uncut Gems (March 10)

I’m a little embarrassed by how little I knew about Uncut Gems without some research. All I had heard was some complaining that Adam Sandler didn’t get an Oscar nom, but that’s not a lot, is it?

The movie is the story of a jeweler with a gambling habit that finds himself in trouble when a gem he was planning to use to pay debts is stolen. Interestingly, the lead was originally offered to Sandler, who passed (that was back in 2009). Then it went to Jonah Hill in 2017, and eventually bounced back to Sandler. Casting is like magic – I’m fascinated by it.

Looking for more movies about gambling? Try Casino Royale (streaming on HBO) or The Sting (available to rent on Amazon)
