Rebecca, dir. Ben Wheatley
“Based on Daphne du Maurier’s beloved 1938 gothic novel, Rebecca tells the story following a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo between handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), and his new wife (Lily James). They arrive at Manderley, de Winter’s imposing family estate on a windswept English coast. Naive and inexperienced, the new Mrs de Winter begins to settle into the trappings of her life but finds herself battling the shadow of her predecessor, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley’s sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas),” Kerry Brown / Netflix
Emily in Paris, dir. Darren Star
“This sweeping romantic comedy from Sex and the City creator Darren Star looks set to be the most comforting show on TV come autumn. The 10-episode series sees Lily Collins take center stage as an ambitious American executive who relocates to the French capital to work for a prestigious marketing firm. Between updating their social media strategy and befriending her colleagues, she finds time to party, often dressed in over-the-top ensembles courtesy of iconic stylist Patricia Field,” Carole Bethuel / Netflix
Enola Holmes, dir. Harry Bradbeer
“Millie Bobby Brown takes on the role of the titular teenage detective — and sister of Mycroft (Sam Claflin) and Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill) — in Harry Bradbeer’s spirited adaptation of Nancy Springer’s beloved mystery series. Following the disappearance of her eccentric mother (Helena Bonham Carter), she flees finishing school to track her down and becomes a shrewd investigator in the process. Expect quirky period costuming and a fresh, feminist take on a sometimes staid genre,” Robert Viglaski.
