News & Interviews for Better Things: Season 3
It's a season about menopause, weight gain, concern over her mother's dementia, and, most of all, motherhood in all its glory and awfulness.
You never know where an episode of "Better Things" will go, which is thoroughly refreshing. But you can always be certain it will show fierce respect for women.
Unfolds in dreamy, fragmented interludes, which layer together to form a singular, candid illustration of Adlon's life -- a rich tapestry of s----y experiences that's somehow beautified by the way she pulls it all together.
In the end, there's no one takeaway; there are dozens, and they're delivered with the kind of beautiful storytelling that appears effortless, but actually requires acknowledgement on levels both granular and grand.
"Better Things" is funny, but organically, and at times unintentionally so.
