3 Things You Won’t Regret Watching This Weekend

3 Things You Won’t Regret Watching This Weekend

One of the best rom-com’s to hit the big screen in ages, the chilling finale to the Handmaid’s Tale and Netflix’s newest film takes a lighthearted look at blind dating – all worth a watch this weekend.?


?ON THE BIG SCREEN: THE BIG SICK

Standup comic?Kumail Nanjiani and his partner wrote this film based on real experience (and they are still together), and it makes it all the more enjoyable. The plot of a Pakistani comic who bonds with his almost-girlfriend’s white parents while she’s in a medically-induced coma? It’s not quite one you’d think of, off?the top of your head. ?But it’s genuinely funny and has a tenderness that elevates it beyond been-there-done-that tired formula.?I haven’t smiled as broadly at the end of a film in ages.

The Big Sick is in?cinemas nationwide now

ON TV:?THE HANDMAID’S TALE FINALE

The series finale (for those who haven’t streamed ahead) airs on Channel 4 on Sunday and it’s worth cancelling all your plans for. Janine is sentenced to a brutal punishment for her recent acts of disobedience, which leaves Offred and her fellow Handmaids faced with an unthinkable choice between her life and their own safety. Serena Joy discovers how her husband has been keeping secrets from her, while Moira makes a desperate journey to the Canadian border having escaped imprisonment in Jezebels. And what becomes of Offred? A gripping end to an outstanding series.

The Handmaid’s Tale, episode?10, airs on Sunday, July 29th at 10pm on Channel 4
