What to watch on Crave in December 2020

Including Meryl Streep in Let Them All Talk, Euphoria's Christmas special and Your Honor starring Bryan Cranston


We go deep into the December 2020 Crave schedule to find the most anticipated titles hitting the streaming platform this month.

What we can’t wait to watch

Let Them All Talk

Well, 2020 can’t be that bad if there’s a new Steven Soderbergh movie. And this one’s a comedy! Meryl Streep, who played a pivotal (and, some might say, ill-advised) dual role in 2019’s The Laundromat, plays a celebrated author forced to reckon with her past choices while on a splashy cruise with her friends and relations, who are played by the likes of Candice Bergen, Gemma Chan, Dianne Wiest and Lucas Hedges. Of all the genres Soderbergh has explored over the decades, he’s never done anything like this before – unless there’s a secret heist movie hiding inside. Maybe there is! That would be the greatest twist of all! December 10

Your Honor

It’s been seven years since Breaking Bad wrapped up its story – which means it’s high time Bryan Cranston got back to making questionable moral decisions in the name of family. That’s the hook of Showtime’s new limited series, which casts Cranston as a New Orleans judge trying to protect his son (Hunter Doohan) from the consequences of a hit-and-run. Naturally, this leads to a whole pile of unexpected consequences, up to and including a beef with married mob bosses (Michael Stuhlbarg and Hope Davis). Ten episodes of Bryan Cranston furiously proclaiming his righteousness while digging ever deeper holes for himself and his kin? Bring. It. On. December 6

40 Years A Prisoner

Tommy Oliver’s documentary about the clash between Philadelphia police and the revolutionary MOVE commune is hitting HBO Max after playing at TIFF a couple months ago. After a police officer died in a 1978 raid, nine members of the group – all of them Black – received lengthy prison sentences. This film alternates between an archival account of past events and present-day interviews with Mike Africa Jr., who delves into the siege. After being relegated to the history books, the story of MOVE is getting a lot of attention this year. It also featured in another TIFF title, The Inheritance. December 3

Euphoria

Two special episodes of the Drake-produced, Sam Levinson-directed HBO teen drama will bridge seasons one and two. The first episode will follow Zendaya’s relapsing Rue over the Christmas holidays. Details of the second episode haven’t been announced yet. Earlier this year, Zendaya became the youngest person to win an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series for her role on the show. December 6

Letterkenny (season 9)

Look, at this point you either get Letterkenny or you don’t. After eight seasons and a bunch of holiday specials, Jared Keeso and Jacob Tierney’s cult Canadian comedy is entirely its own thing, a turducken in overalls filled with high-speed arguments, deadpan insults and carefully calibrated eccentricities spread out among an increasingly large cast. This year, according to Crave’s press release: “Katy takes her scorched-earth dating strategy back to Letterkenny and Gail gets some action of her own. Meanwhile, the Hockey Players learn about Judaism and the whole town gets really into sleepover activities like movies, board games, and girl talk… and Tanis (Tiio Horn) starts her own energy drink.” If you know this show, you’ll know why that’s funny. And if you don’t, you’ve got about a month to get caught up. Pitter patter. December 25

The Bee Gees: How Can You Mend A Broken Heart

“There’s nothing else to say about the Bee Gees except they’re fucking awesome,” says Justin Timberlake in the trailer for this doc about the British-born sibling trio who dominated the charts and airwaves in the 70s. The film follows their career and also looks at the phenomenon of sibling music acts, with archival footage, rare recording session clips, home movies and a ton of new interviews. December 12 at 8 pm

A still from the movie the Photograph, hitting Crave in December 2020

Solid bets

The Photograph

Want to see a great grown-up romance? Stella Meghie’s sultry, subtle drama pairs Issa Rae and LaKeith Stanfield as Mae and Michael, lovers drawn together by her past, and brings out the best in both actors. Rae is reserved and cautious, her distance working to pull us in closer, while Stanfield has a presence and confidence that recalls the young Brando. Shifting back and forth between New Orleans and New York City – and shuffling time to show us a few key moments in the life of Mae’s mother Christine (Chanté Adams) decades earlier – Meghie crafts a movie about small moments between people that can define entire lives, finding echoes and points of connection that sync up elegantly. This will be perfect viewing for one of those snowy, chilly evenings between Christmas and New Year’s. Savour it. December 18

Felicity (seasons 1-4 )

Nostalgia watching is helping us get through the pandemic – how else to explain the popularity of all those reunion shows? Now the J.J. Abrams/Matt Reeves series about the eponymous college student (Keri Russell) who’s torn between dreamboat Ben (Scott Speedman) and nice guy Noel (Scott Foley) is around to provide comfort during the long winter months. December 25
