Crave Weekly Highlights August 4 – 10

AUGUST 5 – PARALLEL MOTHERS *Movie Premiere*

Two women, Janis (Penélope Cruz) and Ana (Milena Smit), cross paths in a hospital room as they wait to give birth. Both are single and became pregnant by accident. Janis, middle-aged, doesn’t regret it and is exultant. Ana, an adolescent, is scared, repentant, and traumatized. Janis tries to encourage her while they move like sleepwalkers along the hospital corridors. The few words they exchange in these hours create a very close link between the two, which develops and complicates, and changes their lives, in a decisive way.

AUGUST 5 – NIGHTMARE ALLEY *Movie Premiere*

Nominated for four Academy Awards including Best Picture, the neo-noir psychological thriller set in 1940s New York, sees down-on-his-luck Stanton Carlisle (Bradley Cooper) endear himself to a clairvoyant, and her mentalist husband at a traveling carnival. Using newly acquired knowledge, Carlisle crafts a golden ticket to success by swindling the elite and wealthy. Hoping for a big score, he soon hatches a scheme to con a dangerous tycoon with help from a mysterious psychologist, who might be his most formidable opponent yet.

AUGUST 5 – HBO’s THE REHEARSAL *New Episode*

An all-new episode of Nathan Fielder’s critically acclaimed HBO series THE REHEARSAL streams Friday, August 5 at 11 p.m. ET. Praised in Toronto Star as a methodological masterpiece, and described as “uncomfortably funny, sneakily poignant, and conceptually bananas” in The New York Times, THE REHEARSAL explores the lengths one man will go to reduce the uncertainties of everyday life. With a construction crew, a legion of actors, and seemingly unlimited resources, Fielder allows ordinary people to prepare for life’s biggest moments by “rehearsing” them in carefully crafted simulations of his own design. In the fourth episode of the series titled “The Fielder Method,” Fielder travels to Los Angeles to train actors for his show.
