Hulu This Week: 71 New Titles

No comments

Hulu this week (May 31-June 6) plans to add 71 new TV shows and movies to its subscription Video on Demand service, including an original documentary and a critically-acclaimed movie.

The new titles will include We Are Freestyle Love Supreme, a Hulu original documentary about a hip-hop improvisational group founded by Hamilton star and producer Lin-Manuel Miranda. (He’s the producer here, too.)

Also notable this week: Shirley (pictured above), which stars Elisabeth Moss as real-life horror writer Shirley Jackson whose tempestuous marriage is further enflamed when she and her husband ( Michael Stuhlbarg) encounter a quirky but naïve young couple. (Sounds like Edward Albee’s ghost was on the set.)

Rottentomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives the movie a score of 97 out of a possible 100, based on 37 reviews.

“A concoction of fact and magical realism, which may frame the film as a radically more exciting cousin to Stephen Daldry’s Virginia Woolf-centered, triptych drama The Hours,” writes Brian Tallerico of RogerEbert.com.

Hulu this week will also add Casino, the Martin Scorsese-directed crime drama set in Las Vegas with Robert DeNiro and Joe Pesci as leads; and Dirty Dancing, the 1987 surprise hit starring Patrick Swayze and Jennifer Grey as accidental dance partners in the Catskills.
