My love affair with the Hulu channel hit a peak with the twelve-part Normal People. This is one of the most invigorating, perspective, moving, and intimate love stories ever portrayed. Sally Rooney’s novel has been adapted with a grace and elegance that is jaw dropping. Daisy Edgar Jones stars as the ultimate troubled rich girl. Her brilliant gutted performance flies across the screen. But the real revelation here is Peter Mescal. As the lower middle class Irish lad, he devours us with an introspection that the camera worships. After Hulu’s Little Fires Everywhere, Handmaids Tale Mrs. America, The Great, The Act, and 11-22-63, I was flabbergasted by Normal People. This thirty-day Hulu trial period has been an unexpected surprise.
