Hulu Pick of the Month for December 2020

Eyes Wide Shut Cruise

Everyone has their own favorite Christmas movies, but if your tastes lean dangerous, seductive, and endlessly excellent, the odds are good that Eyes Wide Shut (1999) is on your list. Stanley Kubrick’s final film stars Tom Cruise and Nicole Kidman as a couple caught up in… er, family drama and decadent parties? There’s mystery and danger, to be sure, but the core of the film is a mesmerizing dissection of a marriage on the edge. The film is well beyond Cruise’s usual comfort zone, and he proves himself more than up to the daunting task of delivering a man who’s lost control of his own life. It’s also, oddly, Kubrick’s warmest film by a colorfully lit mile.

The Best New Arrival of the Month, Allegedly


Letterkenny Season 9 premieres on December 26th, and it’s almost guaranteed to be a wickedly funny salve for the year that’s preceded it. The show’s absurdly dry and witty humor goes over some heads, but those of us on its wavelength are treated to deceptively smart banter and endlessly entertaining characters. Good friends, worse enemies, and a small town where nothing much happens are the perfect ingredients for a casual but memorable series to fall in love with (if you haven’t already).

Romance, 2020 Style

Valley Girl

This has been a year, and sometimes it’s only the sweetly familiar beats of a movie romance that works to calm the nerves. If that applies to you, Hulu has two new romances that actually premiered during 2020. First up is Valley Girl (2020), a YA-centric remake of the ’80s “classic,” and while stars Jessica Rothe and Josh Whitehouse aren’t quite Deborah Foreman and Nicolas Cage they’re amiable enough. It’s once again set in the ’80s, but this time it’s in musical form for better or worse delivering some catchy tunes and dance numbers. Endless (2020) received even less press this year, but it actually looks to be the more promising of the two. It’s a supernaturally tinged love story starring Alexandra Shipp and Nicholas Hamilton as a distraught teen holding onto her love for a dead boyfriend trapped in limbo. Open your hearts to love stories no one’s talking about!

Indies You Might Have Missed

She Dies Tomorrow

Amy Seimetz’s latest effort as director, She Dies Tomorrow (2020), hits Hulu on December 4th and brings a world of anxiety and cosmic horror into your life. The film is a beautifully dry and haunting look at an unraveling — of people, of society — and Seimetz infuses it with beauty, humor, and a twist of terror. It’s among my favorites of the year, and like the best films, it’s one that sits with you for weeks and months after. The Little Hours (2017) arrives on December 23rd, and while it’s an entirely different kind of film, it’s once again a movie that plays smartly with tone and genre. Set in a nunnery during the Middle Ages, the comedy stars Alison Brie, Aubrey Plaza, Kate Micucci, Molly Shannon, John C. Reilly, Fred Armisen, Nick Offerman, and Dave Franco, and nearly all of of them are enjoying the anachronistic curse words.
