Netflix is streaming a seven episode series called Hollywood. It’s a movie about a movie… sort of. It’s very kitchy, but a delight to look at. The photography and lighting are spectacular. The costumes, sets and cars are wonderful. It’s some fact and a lot of fiction. There are new faces and a lot of old familiar faces. It’s fun, but it carries a heavy message about discrimination; discrimination in Hollywood in particular. Discrimination against women, gays and people of color.
This is a wonderfully made series and well worth the watch.
