The steady flow of content we’ve come to expect is starting to slow with new productions being put on hiatus for at least the next little while. Luckily there are still a few streaming releases this month to keep you entertained. Here are a few May releases to keep you busy.
Honey Boy is a semi-biographical film about a 12-year-old boy who finds success as a television star while dealing with his abusive, alcoholic father. Shia LeBeouf hits all the right notes (as he normally does) in a movie that he also wrote and young Noah Jupe holds his own as well. It is a gut-wrenching and deeply personal journey into the actor’s past. Watch this one on Prime Video.
I Know This Much Is True
Based on the 1998 novel of the same name, I Know This Much Is True is about a relationship between a man and his paranoid schizophrenic brother and his efforts to get him released from an asylum. This is a 6 episode mini-series so there is quite a bit of content here and Mark Ruffalo gives a fantastic performance playing both brothers. Watch this one of Crave.
Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian
The first-ever live-action Star Wars show was a resounding success with near-universal praise and it seems Disney is going to do everything they can to keep milking that success. Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian is a weekly round table discussion about the show that includes creator Jon Favreau, director Taika Waititi, and star Pedro Pascal. Watch this one of Disney Plus.
While this one hasn’t been released yet, you will definitely want to keep it on your radar. Space Force is a new show from the creators of The Office that hopes to fill the workplace comedy shoes of its predecessors. It’s about a new branch of the United States military tasked with defending the new frontier. Watch this one on Netflix, May 29th.
