Patrick Melrose

I don’t know about you, but any distraction on a long haul flight is a life saver. The last overseas trip I took, was a couple of years ago to Europe. On the first leg to Singapore, I came across a mini-series which helped me get through part of the marathon trip. Patrick Melrose is a five part series that completely engrossed me. I found it at times humorous, shocking, but also heartbreaking. The series is based on the semi-autobiographical novels of Edward St. Aubyn.

 

Patrick Melrose had a privileged but abusive upbringing that shapes him into adulthood.

Hugo Weavingupbringing, that shapes him into adulthood.

With the fabulous Benedict Cumberbatch and Australia’s Hugo Weaving in the cast, it was off to a good start.

It was nominated for many awards, not that that means a great deal to me. I’m not a particular devotee of the movies, but if someone asks about what to watch, it’s the first thing that comes to mind to recommend.  Since it was some years ago I watched it, I guess that makes for  a pretty good recommendation.

Wait for a weekend where you can tuck yourself away and binge watch the whole series. I might treat myself to it again some time soon.

I absolutely loved it!!  Let me know what you think.

You can find it on Stan or iview.
