Station Eleven

{5/5} “I don’t want to live the wrong life and die.”

Station Eleven, aired in 2021-22

Jeevan meets 8-year-old Kirsten at a production of “King Lear” in which she’s acting. He helps her out. In the middle of helping her out, he finds out from his doctor sister that there’s a deadly flu and he should go to his brother Frank’s and barricade the door. He takes Kirsten with him. Eighty days later Jeevan and Kirsten emerge into a different world.

Twenty years later, Kirsten rides a horse from town to town as part of a travelling Shakespearean company of actors.

This is a 10-part miniseries based on the book.

It’s pretty serious, and is intense at times. But the 1st episode will grab you right away, and you’ll want to find out what happens.

It sometimes shows scenes from a different perspective, to good effect.

It’s about people who want to remember the past, people who want to forget the past, people who want to keep moving, and people who want to settle down.

The music by Dan Romer is superb.

David Cross has a nice role in one episode. Matilda Lawler does a fantastic job playing Young Kirsten.

Stars Mackenzie Davis, Himesh Patel, and Lori Petty.

Created by Patrick Somerville (Made for Love).
