18 ENTERTAINMENT FRIDAY JUNE 5 2020 CAVE01Z01MA - V1 READ DEEP WATER by SARAH EP STEIN Australian author Sarah Epsteins latest novel is written for young adults/teenagers but readers of adult thrillers will find it just as satisfying. Set in the mythical small town The Shallows a few hours outside Sydney, it follows Chloe Baxters efforts to find out what happened to her friend, Henry, 13, who disappeared on the night of a violent storm. The story starts three months after Henrys disappearance and works backwards, with Chloe and her group of former school friends gradually unravelling events leading up to Henrys disappearance. The story tackles some meaty subjects there are marriage breakdowns, blended families, same-sex families, custody arrangements, alcoholism, teens navigating relationships, and sexuality confusion. It sounds like a lot, but it actually works well, as each character is brought to life. FEEL GOOD CRAZY, STUPID, LOVE Sometimes its just nice, especially in todays environment, just to tune into a feel good movie. A solid, almost apologetically sincere comedy, perhaps a little too play-safe for some adventurous tastes, but played to nearperfection by a top-flight cast. Steve Carell (Date Night) stars as Cal, a middle-aged Mr Average who has just been dumped by Emily (Julianne Moore), his wife of over twenty years. With assistance from a younger Mr Smooth named Jacob (Ryan Gos ling), Cal gradually becomes a proficient player of the dating game. The more you burrow into its many subplots, the more interesting and creatively connected the film becomes. BINGE SUCCESSION Few shows have been as critically acclaimed recently as HBOs Succession. The show tells the story of the Roy family and its titanic media empire. The shows first season followed the familys patriarch, Logan Roy, as he struggled, King Lear-style, to divide his empire among his children and hand over control. A 2020 Golden Globe winner for best television series-drama, Succession is a must-watch show for anyone.
