STATE OF THE UNION (Movistar +)
What can come of the union between Stephen Frears, director of
), and Nick Hornby (
A Big Boy
Well, nothing less than a series of
10 chapters, 10 minutes long
each, which is a prodigy of intelligence and brilliant dialogues and in which comedy and drama are well linked.
This is a 'very British' production starring Chris O'Dowd (
My best friend's wedding
) and Rosamund Pike (
They are Tom and Louise,
a couple who go to therapy sessions
The brilliant thing in this case is that you do not see the sessions themselves, but how Tom and Louise

of two people who loved each other and who now seek to know the reasons why it all ended.
The plot of 'State of the Union' takes place largely inside a pub.

THE UNDOING (HBO)
Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman
Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman
embody an exemplary (and lined, it must be said) marriage that lives in New York and faces its most difficult moments.
With one murder involved, who is the culprit is the main claim of this series.
But there is more: while the mystery is solved, we attend a
crash course in how lies are the great pit to which a relationship is thrown.
And, in the case of the main characters, Grace (Kidman) and Jonathan (Grant) have never told the truth.
Hence this thriller is fascinating.
Almost as much as the irony of discovering a successful psychiatrist who well deserves a separate diagnosis.
Hugh Grant and Nicole Kidman are the 'stars' of 'The Undoing'.
THE CROWN (Netflix)
I wish no one ever had to experience something like the constant humiliation that
Charles of England subjected Diana Spencer to
The fourth season of this luxurious production tells, among its main plots, how was the relationship between the son of Elizabeth II and
a young and vital girl who we see fade to the scorn of whoever her husband was.
True or not, you just have to contemplate the tense meeting between Camila de Cornwall (then Camila Camila Parker Bowles, lover of the heir) and Diana Spencer in a restaurant at the request of Carlos himself.
Camila, who knew Carlos better than who was to be his wife, has no qualms about rubbing him in Lady Di's face.
Stabs of those that hurt with elegant ways, yes.
Not to mention all the moments in which
Carlos criticizes his wife in private

money laundering and operating in tax havens
Chapter by chapter we discover Wendy vindicating herself before her husband and rejoining her job.
A high-altitude duel between two privileged minds with the occasional truce.
Wendy (Laura Linney) takes a 'step forward' before her husband Marty (Jason Batmena).
IN TREATMENT (IN THERAPY) (HBO)
It is essential to look back a decade to vindicate this series set in a consultation led by Dr. Weston (Gabriel Byrne), who listens carefully to his patients.
Although there are several cases, it is worth remembering that of Amy (Embeth Davidtz) and Jake (Josh Charles).
They are a
couple that doubts whether or not to continue with a pregnancy
A decision that seems complicated when everyone thinks differently.
