THREE WAYS TO REACH FOR THE STARS: WATCH, LISTEN, READ

We have you covered, from one night that changes everything for a flight attendant, to an album whose Roman numeral might fool you and on to scenes from a dark, intense hospital ward in Ireland.

WATCH | THE FLIGHT ATTENDANT
American flight attendant Cassie Bowden’s life changes in one night. After a night out with a passenger she met on a flight, Bowden wakes up in a hotel room in Bangkok with a hangover and a dead man next to her. Played by actress Kaley Cuoco, Bowden tries to piece the night together while wondering who the killer could have been. Watch now on HBO Max. 

LISTEN | McCARTNEY III
McCartney III isn’t Paul McCartney’s third solo album. It’s actually his 18th. Bookended by acoustic songs about birds, much of the album feels appropriately homespun, unadorned and immediate. “Slidin” is heavy and sludgy, and “Find My Way” is playful and “The Kiss of Venus” is fragile. The album was recorded by himself at his studio near his home in Sussex, England. 

READ | THE PULL OF THE STARS
In an Ireland doubly ravaged by war and disease, nurse Julia Power works at an understaffed hospital in the city center, where expectant mothers who have come down with the terrible new flu are quarantined together. Into Julia’s regimented world step two outsiders Doctor Kathleen Lynn, a rumoured rebel on the run from the police, and a young volunteer helper, Bridie Sweeney. In the darkness and intensity of this tiny ward, over three days, these women change each other’s lives in unexpected ways.
