Your Weekend: A Selective Guide

Movies: “Passages” is the new indie feature from Ira Sachs and apparently the sex scenes are very explicit. (I don’t like explicit sex in narrative features: as Orson Welles once said: “They throw you out of the story, and the story never recovers.”)…TV/Streaming: Someone told me to watch “Sweet Magnolias” and “Suits” on Netflix. That person obviously didn’t know me!..Books: I didn’t love the novel “The Covenant of Water” as much as I wanted, but I still think it’s the finest fiction of the year…Music: I’m sorry I missed the Beyonce concert last weekend at the Meadowlands. So I’m atoning by listening to her recent album “Renaissance”…Sports: I hate to say it, but the USA are not going to win the Women’s World Cup.
