Amazon Prime Video’s September line up is out. And like always there are some overtly impressive names in the list, be it documentaries or dramas. While you definitely have your favorites to binge-watch again, The Digital Hash is making your job easier by listing out five must-watches. Here we go.
One Mississippi: The second season of One Mississippi, a comedy starring Tig Notaaro, returns with a fictional twist in complete contrast with the first season which was semi-autobiographical. But it will pick up from where the first ended – Tig is living with her stepfather Bill and brother Remy in the family home in Mississippi. She also resumes her radio career in Biloxi with Kate (played by Tig’s wife, Stephanie Allynne) by her side, though her outspoken point of view proves controversial for the local market. An opportunity to take a bigger stage in New Orleans comes with more reach, and also more responsibility. Don’t miss it, as it streams from September 8.
Transparent: Season four of Transparent will begin with the Pfeffermans taking a spiritual and political journey to the Holy Land of Israel to dig deeper into their family’s history. Apart from Israeli experiences, including visits to the Western Wall, Dead Sea, and camel rides through the desert, the upcoming season continues to tackle themes of identity, sexuality, acceptance, love, and family. Premiering on September 22.
The Lost City of Z: An Amazon Prime Original, this biographical adventure drama film is based on the 2009 book of the same name by David Grann. It describes real events surrounding British explorer Percy Fawcett who was sent to Bolivia and later made several attempts to find an ancient lost city in the Amazon and disappeared in 1925 along with his son on an expedition. Watch it for Charlie Hunnam who stars as Fawcett, Sienna Miller as his wife Nina Fawcett, and Robert Pattinson as his fellow explorer Henry Costin – on September 15.
Straight/Curve: Challenging The Beauty: A documentary about body image and the industry leaders challenging society’s unrealistic and dangerous standards of beauty, it challenges the notion that thin bodies are the “ideal”, and examines how the types of bodies shown in the media and the fashion industry can affect women’s sense of body satisfaction. Catch it on September 17.
Tin Star: Former London police detective Jim Worth has moved to Canada with his family, as the new police chief of a small town – Little Big Bear – to escape his past. As the crime in the town increases with the influx of migrant workers, Jim has to work hard to protect the town irating the criminals.
