The Stepfather follows Michael Harding (Penn Badgley), a military student who returns home to find his divorced mother Susan (Sela Ward) having an affair with another man. But not just any dude, mind you. David (Dylan Walsh) is your average knight in shining armour, at least that’s what we assume. After seeing predatory conduct and strange circumstances that scream “serial killer,” Michael is horrified by his findings and can’t shake the idea that David is putting on a show. The Stepfather does not disappoint with superb performances and a mind-blowing premise.
- Genre: Romance
- Where to Stream: Netflix
Netflix’s Heartstopper is a wonderful instance of how to transfer a graphic novel to screen. It’s easily one of the best, if not the best, shows of the year. The young ensemble of the series shines via a succession of brilliantly produced scenes that look like they jumped off the comics page and onto the screen, while yet feeling like a TV programme, thanks to the partnership between writer Alice Oseman and director Euros Lyn. What about the narrative, though? The episode follows Charlie Spring (Joe Locke), an out gay student at an English boys’ school who falls head over heals for popular rugby player Nick Nelson (Kit Conner). Nick could be a straight guy. Heartstopper is a flawless romantic comedy that will make your heart swell and eyes fill with tears. It is inclusive, uplifting, sensitive, but never shying away from difficult subjects. The title is what to watch this weekend on Netflix right now.
