Rebecca is a Netflix Original movie that stars Lily James, Armie Hammer and Kristin Scott Thomas. The film is based on the 1938 novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier. It’s the story of a young woman who falls in love with the owner of England’s most famous house and she is haunted by the shadow of his first wife, Rebecca. While it may seem like a romance movie, it is everything but. There are twists and turns throughout the whole film that will leave you shocked at the end. Murder, scandals and coverups, this is the perfect movie to watch on a night in. Without revealing too much of the plot, Rebecca is dark, haunting and thrilling.
Ariana Grande’s “Positions”
On October 30, 2020, Ariana Grande released her sixth album entitled “Positions.” The singer worked with a variety of producers on the album, including Tommy Brown, London on da Track, Murda Beatz, The Rascals, Scott Storch and Charles Anderson. The singer broke away from her signature style to create an album filled with a bunch of different melodies and harmonies. The sense of intimacy is evident throughout the whole storyline, each song adding a different layer. A New York Times review stated that Grande was able to “turn her music into an atmosphere as intimate as her bedroom, a place where she’s sometimes entertaining a lover but just as often cracking goofy jokes with her closest friends.”
