Missing “Broadchurch”? Watch “Loch Ness,” a new murder mystery where the real monster isn’t the one lurking beneath the water. And Katy Perry opens up about navigating her public and private selves on a special edition of “The Therapist.”
LOCH NESS on Acorn TV. When a piano teacher’s body is found at the bottom of a cliff — with part of his brain having been extracted through his nasal cavity while he was still alive — a search for a different kind of monster begins in a village on the shore of the famed Scottish loch. Laura Fraser (“Breaking Bad”) stars as the local Detective Sergeant Annie Redford, the mother of an unruly teenage daughter and wife of a tour-boat operator in a close-knit town where, as in “Broadchurch,” everybody has a secret. Siobhan Finneran (“Downton Abbey”) is Detective Chief Inspector Lauren Quigley, brought in from Glasgow to lead the investigation, with her promotion depending on its successful conclusion — and who thinks the killer is hiding in plain sight. Writing in The New York Times, Neil Genzlinger called it “a fine diversion for summer evenings.”
AFTER THE WEDDING (2007) on Tribeca Shortlist. Jacob (Mads Mikkelsen), a Danish aid worker helping run an orphanage in Mumbai, is offered a large contribution by Jorgen (Rolf Lassgard), a tycoon from his homeland, who insists that Jacob return to the country he left 20 years earlier to pick it up. Then Jorgen extends an invitation to attend the wedding of his daughter (Stine Fischer Christensen). This movie from Susanne Bier, nominated for an Oscar for best foreign-language film, is “a fine and, on a scene-by-scene basis, often better than fine, if effectively unadventurous work, in which a man’s anguished cry is met by a finale designed to ease the pain,” Manohla Dargis wrote in The Times.
