Framing Britney Spears – the New York Times’ documentary about Britney Spears is streaming on Hulu and Nine Now…

The documentary covers the #FreeBritney movement and the whole story of her rise and fall from fame. The role the media played as well as the general public is also examined – making it all a fascinating film to watch.

The Britney Spears story is complicated and many people, especially those in the #FreeBritney community, believe she is unfairly being held in a conservatorship by her father, Jamie Spears.

But you can judge for yourself after watching this film – see her whole story from her relationship with her boyfriend Justin Timberlake and later to her downfall. It’s shocking to see how she was treated as a woman in the entertainment industry.

The documentary is part of the highly regarded The New York Times Presents series and so it has some great insights. The documentary was only streaming on Hulu before so if you wanted to watch it in Australia you had to set up a VPN so it seems like you’re living in the US.

But Channel 9 aired the documentary in early March 2021 so now you can watch it on Nine Now so now you can watch the first episode there and others as they stream.

The new TV series which continues on the story of The Silence of the Lambs is premiering on Stan today…

Called Clarice, the series stars Australian actress Rebecca Breeds, who you might know from Pretty Little Liars but also from her longtime stint as Ruby Buckland on Home and Away. Breeds plays the role of FBI Agent Clarice Starling.

Set in 1993, one year after the events of The Silence of the Lambs, the series focuses on what Clarice’s life looks like now after living through those dramatic events.

Clarice is now a bit of a star of the press, even though she’s been taken off active duty and is working in the Behavioral Sciences Unit. She’s become one of the FBI’s most recognisable agents.

So even if you haven’t seen The Silence of the Lambs, you’ll still be able to understand this series. It’s a gritty and exciting crime drama which works hard to make Clarice a complex character. But if you’re a big fan of The Silence of the Lambs, you can’t miss this.

Clarice is streaming on Stan today.

Harry Potter movies have been around for 20 years…

Harry Potter fans – both the young and the old – can now stream all eight Harry Potter movies on Binge. 

The Harry Potter movie franchise is one of the world’s biggest and most successful in history and now, as the franchise marks 20 years since the release of its first movie, Australian fans can stream all eight blockbusters.

The eight movies in the franchise are: Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone; Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets; Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban; Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire; Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix; Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince; Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 1; and Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2.

Stars of the films Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter), Rupert Grint (Ron Weasley) and Emma Watson (Hermione Granger), became overnight sensations when the first movie, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone, hit cinemas in 2001, growing up alongside their characters until the final movie, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Part 2 was released in 2011.

All eight Harry Potter movies are streaming on Binge.

It’s a Sin is a landmark series now streaming on STAN…

It’s A Sin is a new five-part drama from Stan set against the gritty and world of London in the eighties with its vibrant gay culture and party scene. 

The characters are realistic and show how hard it was at the time for young people to explore their sexuality – especially if they’re parents were conservative. We get to know five characters living in a share house in London which they nickname The Pink Palace.

They’re experimenting and having a great time when their lives are rocked by a mysterious new disease which begins to spread through their community. Yes, it’s been 40 years since HIV/AIDS was identified as a problem and of course, it went on to affect so many people’s lives.

It’s a Sin captures this time in Britain’s history in a clear, evocative style, which makes it riveting viewing.
