On another weekend undoubtedly marked by appointments like Euro 2021Those who are not footballers or want to have something else to entertain themselves at home, can take a look at the billboard of VOD premieres on video on demand, because there are quite a few important premieres without a doubt.
A bit of everything this weekend, on the Disney platform we have a Disney + original, The Mysterious Benedict Society (Season 1), with all the ingredients to enchant the little ones, the series is about 4 orphans with unique abilities -not powers- who become part of a mysterious secret society that recruits them for their missions. Grown-ish, season 1, in which we see that being a teenager and starting to go to university is not easy, especially when you experiment with the way life shows you its adult face based on sex, drugs and new ways of seeing the relationships.
As for documentaries, as June is Pride month, several LGBTQ + directors join in on PRIDE to create a fresco on the history of the United States, from the persecution of gays in the 1950s by the FBI to the Queer legacy and the fight for rights such as marriage. Y Wolfgan, the true story of Wolfgang Puck, a young man with a traumatic childhood who as an adult became one of the most respected chefs of the moment.

And since it is summer and things are on fire -as far as heat-, share of sex. But unlike the Elite for youngsters, the one for Sex/Life It is more for adults in that it presents us with the typical dichotomy – which we have already seen and read many times this story – in a woman when her younger and passionate self screams out now that she is married and calm. Let’s add a hot husband who delightedly agrees to his wife’s fantasies, a hot ex-boyfriend who comes to touch the noses -and who knows what else- to the ex-girlfriend he never forgot -but he would do something to make her cut him off. him, right? -, and a completely female behind-the-scenes team, and we have a series about sex, life and fantasies purely from the female point of view, which luckily there are more and more productions like this.
In Movistar +
At Movistar + we have the perfidious, delicious, ironic and faithful adaptation of Jane Austen’s novel of the same name, Emma, starring an enormously sibylline Anya Taylor-Joy, in an inspired performance worthy of a Golden Globe nomination for best actress in comedy or musical. Y Young men and witches, Blumhouse reboot of the cult film ‘Young and Witches’ (1996), a review halfway between the sequel, the “remake” and the tribute adapted to the concerns of the “millennial” generation, sexual diversity and the era “Me, too.” The film abandons the terror to immerse itself in the realm of fantasy and drama, so the fans of the original are not going to leave happy to see it.
What’s more How to survive in a material world (Kajillionaire) with Evan Rachel Wood, Debra Winger, Gina Rodriguez and Richard Jenkins starring in this dramatic comedy directed and written by Miranda July (‘The future’, ‘You, me and everyone else’), an original and tender fable about family relationships and the superficiality of the current life that tells the story of two scammers who have dedicated the 26 years of their daughter’s life to train her in fraud and robbery.
