For those who are craving serious wanderlust during lockdown (and for those who aren’t), Netflix’s Emily in Paris might just be the show you have been waiting for. The series is created by Darren Star, the showrunner of previous hits like ‘Sex and the City’ and Sutton Foster-starrer ‘Younger.’ And just like these iconic shows, Emily in Paris promises all the glitz, glamour, and fashion that Paris has to offer.
Actress Lily Collins stars as the eponymous Emily who is sent to Paris as the American consultant for a marketing firm. Once there, she has many trysts with the most attractive Parisian men. But more than that, the story is about Emily’s journey as a young working woman, as well as discovering her passions and herself. The trailer also gives subtle hints about the differences in American and French culture, which may be interesting to watch.
Emily in Paris is bound to pleasantly remind you of your favourite shows and movies which put women at the fore, and for fans of the seminal game-changer Sex and the City, there’s a lot of talk about empowerment, feminism, beauty, and friendship.
Emily in Paris starts streaming on Netflix on October 2, 2020.
