The Girl From Plainville

Warning: suicide and eating disorder are depicted in episodes

Number of episodes: 8

Based on the true story as seen in the HBO documentary I Love You, Now Die, Michelle Carter loves her boyfriend so much that she encourages him to commit suicide. Played by Elle Fanning, who nails her terrible eyebrows perfectly, you see how a teenage girl could be capable of this and what kind of toll it takes. Much of the show has been dramatized so don’t take everything you watch verbatim.

Rating: 4/5
