Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: Charlize Theron shines in “Atomic Blonde.” Environmentalist Al Gore gives us “An Inconvenient Sequel.” TV/Streaming: Could the themes of “The Great British Baking Show” get any more twee? On Friday, it’s “Tudor Week.” I finally caught up with “Happy Valley” on Netflix: what took me so long? Music: The recent suicide of a Linkin Park band member reminds us that death is good for business: number one on Amazon. Summertime is the right time for Lil Green’s “Romance in the Dark.” Books: Ayobami Adebayo’s debut novel, “Stay with Me,” about the breakdown of a Nigerian marriage, is terrific. Sports: Nothing but baseball for the next month (sigh). Finally: “If your neighbor doesn’t go to heaven, you probably won’t, either.” (G.K. Chesterton)
