Monkey Man
Peacock, 14 June

Dev Patel’s directorial debut, ‘Monkey Man,’ is an old-fashioned revenge story with modern political themes and post-‘John Wick’ flair. Patel, who co-wrote, produced, and stars in the film, plays Kid, whose life is shattered when his mother is killed and his home destroyed. He embarks on a violent quest for vengeance, adopting the Monkey Man moniker from a folktale his mother read to him and honing his toughness in underground boxing matches.

Initially picked up by Netflix and later dropped, ‘Monkey Man’ appealed to producer Jordan Peele, who helped enhance its brutality. The film reflects influences from Patel’s past collaborators, combining Dickensian elements and mythic scope. Patel’s debut is visceral and visually striking, leaving us eager for his next film.

Camino Ghosts
John Grisham

The third installment in the Camino series transports you back to the lush Camino Island, where clever capers continue.

#1 New York Times bestselling author John Grisham returns to Camino Island, where bookseller Bruce Cable and novelist Mercer Mann always find trouble in paradise.

In this new thriller, popular bookseller Bruce Cable shares an irresistible tale with Mercer Mann that might inspire her next novel. A giant resort developer is using its political muscle and deep pockets to claim ownership of a deserted island between Florida and Georgia. Only the island’s last inhabitant, Lovely Jackson, stands in their way. What the developer doesn’t know is that the island has a remarkable history, and locals believe it is cursed… and the past is never truly past.
