Five things to watch this weekend
Documentaries, cringey love stories and post-war novel adaptations — what to stream
My Brilliant Friend Season 2 — Showmax
HBO’s slow-burning but visually exquisite adaptation of mysterious Italian author Elena Ferrante’s series of novels set in post-war Naples continues to provide thoughtful and engaging period pleasures. With a new book just released, Ferrante is again the source of much anticipatory whispering in the literary world and the show provides a fitting on-screen evocation of its much-lauded source material. New episodes are added weekly.
