Derry Girls (Netflix)
Synopsis: Set in Derry Northern Ireland in the 1990s, Derry Girls is a candid, one-of-a-kind comedy about what it’s like to be a teenage girl living amongst conflict. It’s a warm, laugh out loud funny and honest look at the lives of an ordinary family living through the Troubles in the early nineties. Armed police in armoured Land Rovers, British Army check points and ‘peace’ walls are all an everyday reality for Erin. But, despite all that, she has other things to worry about, like the fact the boy she’s in love with (actually in LOVE with), doesn’t know she exists. Or that her Ma and Aunt Sarah make her include her weirdo cousin in EVERYTHING she does. Or that head teacher, Sister Michael, refuses to acknowledge Erin as a literary genius. Not to mention the fact that her second best friend has ALMOST had sex, whereas Erin’s never even kissed anyone yet. Like all teenage girls, Erin has her own Troubles. Derry Girls is based on writer Lisa McGee’s (Indian Summers, Being Human) own experiences of growing up in Northern Ireland amidst immense civil conflict.
