Dead to Me
Finally got around to watching Dead to Me on Netflix.
It’s beautifully written and well acted black comedy. It’s that right dramatic mix of sweet and sad and funny.
Also, as a grown man over the age of 40, it’s refreshing to watch something with grown women over the age of 40, grown women allowed to be messy and complicated and lonely and angry and authentic and just, you know, be their actual age without having to pretend to be younger or forced to put their career on hold until they can play grandmothers as bit parts.
And the real kicker is, both Christina Applegate and Linda Cardellini kill it in their roles.
