Amazon Prime In May 2020: 62 New Titles, 7 Originals

No comments

Amazon next month (May 2020) plans to add 62 new TV shows and movies to its Prime streaming lineup, including seven originals.

The new titles will include Seberg, an Amazon original movie starring Kristen Stewart as the real-life French actress, Jean Seberg (Breathless), whose career was damaged in the 1960s after she engaged in taboo-breaking romances, and controversial racial politics.

Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of just 38 out of a possible 100 based on 113 reviews.

“Seberg’s frustratingly superficial treatment of a fascinating true story does a disservice to its subject — and Kristen Stewart’s performance in the central role,” the site states, summarizing the reviews.

Also notable in May 2020: Upload, an Amazon original sci-fi comedy from Greg Daniels (The Office) about a society where you can upload yourself into an imaginary environment; The Goldfinch, an Amazon original movie starring Ansel Elgort as the son of a woman who’s killed in a bombing; The Last Narc, an Amazon original four-part docuseries on the murder of DEA agent Kiki Camarena; and season two of Homecoming, an Amazon original series starring Janelle Monae as a woman who wakes up in a rowboat with no memory of how she got there, or who she is.
