This Month’s Highlights

Available June 17

If you want more Joshua Jackson in your life: The Affair

Four seasons is a lot to devote to a single affair, but Showtime’s thoughtful drama continues to find new wrinkles in the story of the titular affair that wrecked two relationships (one of which you may be more interested in than the others, because Joshua Jackson is involved). Season four kicks off this month, and Showtime says you can expect “a season about new beginnings, tragic ends and the ever-elusive possibility of forgiveness.” Available June 17.

For the rare film about the immigrant experience: A Better Life

This 2011 film directed by Chris Weitz fills a badly needed void. A Better Life follows Carlos, an immigrant that works as a gardener in East Los Angeles, as he works and takes risks in order to provide for his native-born son, Luis. It’s a movie that’s more deft than it initially appears to be, and also one that does the rare task of taking the dignity and humanity of immigrants as a given in a country that refuses to do so. More movies like this should exist. Available June 1.
