We continue with another Spanish series that, in this case, will come to us with a second season: La Peste. We will immerse ourselves in the Seville of the 16th century, where there is a plague epidemic. Yes, something perfect for these moments where we are going through the COVID-19 pandemic.

Later, the story turns into a thriller, as some bodies of people who had been murdered are found, something that was thought of as an "omen" of the end of the world. In short, perfect for those who expect something shocking and that, to a certain extent, has something to do with reality.

In addition, there is also a movie that will be featured in the HBO catalog. After the wedding, a film by Bart Freundlich that is a remake of a Danish film. Its strongest points? Good performances, where celebrities like Julianne Moore, Michelle Williams or Billy Crudup stand out.

The plot will place us in India, since Isabelle, director of an orphanage in that country, decides to travel to New York to meet Theresa, a woman who had decided to donate a sum of money to improve the institution. From there some problems will begin that will return to the much more complex plot.
