THE TESTAMENTS

Nan A. Talese

Margaret Atwood

Whether you've enjoyed The Handmaid's Tale on Hulu or read the book, rest assured that the dramatic conclusion is addressed in the sequel written by Margaret Atwood, The Testaments! The dystopian adventure continues 15 years after the events that took place in the original book and although the Republic of Gilead continues to rule, it's evident that there are signs that it is crumbling from within. This moment in history is seen through 3 women (2 who are the result of the first generation of people that grew up in this world) who lead very different lives from one another. The third woman is powerful as she knows a number of secrets. The result of what takes place is definitely dramatic.

BETWEEN TWO FERNS: THE MOVIE

Netflix Originals

Netflix brings back the popular web series with Zach Galifianakis who showcases how he is the worst celebrity interviewer ever! The movie is filled with deadpan insults and plenty of pained expressions between the interviewer and the interviewee. Within the movie, he plays an altered version of himself and is tasked by Will Ferrell (who plays a cartoony villain of himself) to conduct 10 interviews in a span of 2 weeks in order for him to get a real network talk show that he really wants.

Throughout the movie, you're treated to a number of star-studded interviews (Keanu Reeves, David Letterman, Brie Larson, etc.) that all end horribly.

Ultimately, viewers will enjoy seeing their favorite celebs allowing themselves to be subjected to Zach's antics as well as trying to keep a straight face through it all.
