Marcel The Shell With Shoes On: Intimate and sweet, but with a surprising streak of melancholy. Well photographed and acted, the story of a seashell can portray a more authentic and resonant family dynamic than most stories about human families. Recommended if you're looking for something wholesome and family friendly, if not entirely happy go lucky.

The Bear: Chaotic, stressful, passionate, funny, and empathetic. I originally didn't have any interest in this but positive word of mouth including a video from one of my favorite essayists convinced me to give it a watch and I'm glad I did. If you've never worked in a restaurant before this will give you a newfound appreciation for the industry and its thankless work.
