The Commons (Christmas Day)
Arriving in its entirety on xmas day to binge after your festive, erm, binge, is The Commons.
“Set in the not too distant future, it’s a story about motherhood as the ultimate act of faith in humanity,” the press release reads. “Part mystery, part relationship drama, it puts a human face on what’s coming down the road and the heroism that lies inside us all when our backs are against the wall.”
