I’ve discovered a few uplifting series and movies. You may have found some too. Please share your recommendations in comments.
Modern Love – series based on New York Times column and podcast. On Amazon Prime.
Unorthodox – based on Deborah Feldman’s memoir. I love the gal who plays the main character. Inspiring to witness what she overcomes. On Netflix. Just 4 episodes. (Yes, I watched them all in one night)
The Upside – movie starring Bryan Cranston and Kevin Hart. Very sweet and funny. On Amazon and Showtime. Paraplegic hires a parolee as his personal caregiver.
Self Made – series starring Octavia Spencer, based on true story of Madame C.J. Walker, another inspiring story of a woman overcoming obstacles. Available on Netflix.
The Kominsky Method – series starring Michael Douglas and Alan Arkin. An endearing friendship between 2 men. On Neflix.

Dead To Me – Comic drama on Netflix. One season, 2nd season coming in June!
Previously, I’ve been drawn to crime series, true crime, etc. These days I’m gravitating to lighter uplifting shows. Imagine that.
