As readers know, I’m a longtime subscriber to Entertainment Weekly and look forward to getting it in my mailbox. It gives me good a full view of what’s going on in everything entertainment related: books, music, film, TV, even streaming. I’m sure I’m not the only EW reader who flips to the Bullseye in the back first. They have great reviews and even curate The Must List — “The Top 10 Things We Love This Week” that is pretty good every week.
Here are the items we offer from the June 30, 2017 list (The American Crime Story cover):

From EW: “When Colin Farrell’s wounded Union soldier is taken in by a Southern school for girls in Sofia Coppola’s gorgeously atmospheric Civil War drama (also starring Nicole Kidman and Kirsten Dunst), he’s looking for healing and maybe a little romance. Careful what you wish for, Colin.”
Okay, I can’t offer you the movie, but Penguin has just reprinted the book as a movie tie-in. So, if you’re like me and like to read the book first, here you go. (Also available in eBook editions.)
