Zoe Kravitz in High Fidelity
There was a moment in late February when I found myself watching Hulu’s High Fidelity on a loop. I’d be begin with wanting to be as cool as Rob (played by Zoe Kravitz), the hopelessly heartbroken romantic who did lose a really good thing with Mac (Kingsley Ben-Adir). On my second binge, I’d be cheering for Cherise (Da’Vine Joy Randolph) to be seen for the badass rock star that she is—by everybody. For the third time, I’m watching for the fellas: Kingsley, Rainbow Sun Francks (fun fact: he’s Cree Summer’s brother) and my new white boy crush Jake Lacy. — Cori Murray
