Sing 2
Sarah recalls watching the music-comedy film at home and says it made her emotional. "I cried because I loved the music and I loved all of these animated things and animals talking and all of that," she adds. A sequel to the hit movie, Sing, the film is written and directed by Garth Jennings and co-directed by Christophe Lourdelet. The film continues the story of the first film and follows Buster Moon and his group who are trying to convince Clay Calloway, the world's most reclusive rock star to join them. The drama boasts of a star-studded cast that includes Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson, Taron Egerton, Tori Kelly, Nick Kroll, Jennings, Peter Serafinowicz, Jennifer Saunders, and Nick Offerman. These actors have reprised their roles from the first instalment of the film franchise along with some new voice-cast members, including Bobby Cannavale, Spike Jonze, Pharrell Williams, Halsey, Chelsea Peretti, Letitia Wright, Eric André, Adam Buxton, and Bono.
Ozark Season 4
Sarah says she recently completed watching the series. "It is a heavy content drama and I was watching it slow," she says. The Emmy-nominated crime drama stars Jason Bateman and Laura Linney as a married couple who move to the Lake of the Ozarks with their family to open up a bigger money laundering operation after one for Mexican drug cartel fails. The show has received positive reviews throughout its run. Critics have especially praised the show for its performances, direction and production value. The show recently released the second part of its final and fourth season. A part of the OTTplay review reads, "Briskly paced, emotional and engaging, the Byrde family are given a splendid farewell." The show has won 32 Primetime Emmy Awards nominations.
The epic series Friends, though ended in 2004, is still watched widely by people across the globe. Sarah says she watches the show almost every day. "Whenever I'm eating lunch or dinner or when I'm alone, I watch Friends. It's kind of like my comfort zone," she adds. One of the popular shows of all time, it often trends on Netflix to date. The series, created by David Crane and Marta Kauffman, revolves around six friends in their 20s and 30s, living in Manhattan. The entire series ranked within the top ten of the final television season ratings and ultimately, rose to No 1 rank in its eighth season. The series stars Jennifer Aniston, Courteney Cox, Lisa Kudrow, Matt LeBlanc, Matthew Perry and David Schwimmer. The series received 62 Emmy Award nominations and won the Outstanding Comedy Series award in 2002. It was also one of the most-watched shows during the pandemic. The cast of the series returned for a reunion special last year, which aired on HBO Max.
