Settle in for good times this weekend because there's a sling of binge-worthy goods you need to cross off your bucket list.

Here's everything you need to binge this week.

Tall Girl

Every school year had one. The tall kid. Awkward, teased, and perpetually hunching. But for Jodi, it’s about more than just bad posture and never being able to find long enough pants, it’s about missing out on teen rights of passage, like dating and school dances. After all, who is she going to date when no one can look her in the eye? No one but the foreign exchange student who just walked through her high school’s doors. Now might be the time she can finally learn to love all six-foot-one of herself, and maybe someone else will, too. Coming of age comedy goodness, Tall Girl is out September 13.


We apologise in advance for making you cry. A little over a decade ago, Evelyn committed suicide, leaving in his wake a family broken by the tragedy of losing their son, and brother. None have been able to talk about it since, let alone heal the pain, or bridge the gaps that appeared between them. Taking on a hike across the U.K., Evelyn’s loved ones attempt to finally come to terms with their loss, and bring their family back together.  


When teenager Marie Adler, played by Kaitlyn Dever, files a police report claiming she's been sexually assaulted by an intruder in her home, the investigating detectives, as well as the people closest to her, come to doubt the truth of her story. Meanwhile, hundreds of miles away, detectives Grace Rasmussen and Karen Duvall (played by Emmy winners Toni Collette and Merritt Wever) meet while investigating an eerily similar pair of intruder rapes and partner to catch a potential serial rapist.

Unbelievable is inspired by the real events in The Marshall Project and ProPublica Pulitzer Prize-winning article, An Unbelievable Story of Rape written by T. Christian Miller and Ken Armstrong, and the This American Life radio episode, Anatomy of Doubt. This one drops September 13.

Creative Processing with Joseph Gordon-Levitt

If you follow JGL on Twitter, you’ll know this is a guy who is fascinated by everything, and interested in everyone. In his limited series, Gordon-Levitt arms himself with listener’s questions and sits down with creatives like Yuka Honda, Shepard Fairey, Rian Johnson, and Seth Rogan to talk about how and why they do what they do. Bound to be enlightening and not a little bit entertaining, Creative Processing with Joseph Gordon-Levitt is out now.
