This episode of Backstage kicks off with HBO and Sky Atlantic’s new drama The Plot Against America.
It shows us an alternative history of the US through the eyes of a working-class Jewish family, who see their country turn to fascism. It’s got Winona Ryder and great costumes, so Katie’s sold – but what about the rest of the gang?
Light, fluffy, and incredibly earnest – the team discuss new Apple TV+ songwriter drama Little Voice. Is the music any good? And how exactly is the main character, Bess, able to afford a storage unit in New York on such a small salary?
Also on Apple TV+, hero of the hour Tom Hanks’s new war film Greyhound is available to watch. Stevie found the trailer incredibly intense, but could it be an Oscar winner?
Over on Netflix, Charlize Theron is giving it her all in The Old Guard. It’s got a great cast, a female director who doesn’t usually do action movies, and a romantic storyline. But is it actually worth watching?
And Claire chats to Jason Isaacs about his new role as Dick Dastardly in Scooby-Doo’s new film, the creatively titled… Scoob (spoiler – the whole team really loved it!).
