Tune in Tonight: Andrew Scott in ‘All of Us Strangers’

Hulu streams the British fantasy “All of Us Strangers,” released in theaters in 2023. Andrew Scott stars as Adam, an isolated writer who visits his old family home after a strange encounter with a man, Henry (Paul Mescal), from his apartment block. While he assumes that his old house had been abandoned, he discovers it occupied by his parents, looking just as they had before they were killed in a car accident some 30 years earlier.

Over the course of the film, he resumes conversations with his long-dead parents and embarks on a relationship with Henry, coming out to his spectral parents whose reactions are shaped by experiences and attitudes of a previous generation.

“Strangers” received near-universal acclaim from critics who praised its ability to bring an intimacy and emotional resonance to what might have been a standard ghost story. Scott was nominated for a Golden Globe for his portrayal of Adam. The film’s absence from Oscar consideration was considered a glaring omission by some.

This only adds to Scott’s stature, having won over audiences as Holmes’ nemesis in the “Sherlock” series starring Benedict Cumberbatch and as the “hot priest” in “Fleabag,” opposite series creator Phoebe Waller-Bridge. He’s due to star in the title role in “Ripley,” the latest adaptation of Patricia Highsmith’s “The Talented Mr. Ripley.” Developed for Showtime, it will stream on Netflix on April 4.

— Netflix begins streaming “Avatar: The Last Airbender,” a live-action adaptation of the popular Nickelodeon cartoon series. This mystical tale reimagines the four ancient primordial elements: water, earth, fire and air, as “nations” that lived in complete harmony until the Fire nation went medieval on the Air Nomads, upsetting the cosmic applecart in a quest for world domination.

Gordon Cormier stars as Aang, the last surviving Air Nomad, who must master all four elements to set the world right before the evil Firelord Ozai (Daniel Dae Kim) puts it to the flame.

“Airbender” will unspool over eight episodes. Clearly aimed at a younger audience receptive to all manner of mystical malarky, “Airbender” has been a hit since the cartoon debuted nearly 20 years ago. I fully admit to having found it impossibly pretentious at the time.

— MAX streams the standup special “Rory Scovel: Religion, Sex and a Few Things in Between.” Produced by Conan O’Brien and Conaco.

— BET+ streams the film profile “Kemba,” inspired by the story of criminal justice reform advocate Kemba Smith.

— True-crime documentary series waste no time in finding paranoia in areas normally associated with life’s greatest joys. There are untold series like “Who the (Bleep) Did I Marry?” that relate sordid tales of true love turned to terror and murder. Hulu now streams the second season of “Death in the Dorms,” tales of higher learning that ended in homicide.
