Patrick Melrose (NR) 302 minutes

PATRICK MELROSE -NEW SERIES (NR) Benedict Cumberbatch delivers a powerhouse performance as English aristocrat Patrick Melrose in this “devastating and brilliant adaptation” (The Economist) of the novels by Edward St Aubyn. Chronicling the hilarious highs and devastating lows of his tumultuous life, this blackly humorous drama follows Patrick from his childhood trauma at the hands of an abusive father (Hugo Weaving) and neglectful mother (Jennifer Jason Leigh), to the peak of his heroin addiction, and his attempts to stay sober and support his family. “Beautifully acted by an exceptional cast” CNN
