The Indiscreet Charms of the Bourgeoisie
My piece on the vicarious charms of The White Lotus, out now in The Spectator
“The Italian hotel hosts three generations of Di Grasso men, bound by blood and their poor relationships with women; and Aubrey Plaza’s snippy lawyer Harper, on vacation with her husband Ethan (Will Sharpe), his tech-bro roommate Cameron (Theo James) and ditsy wife Daphne (Meghann Fahy).
They’re just as cringe-inducing and deluded as the Hawaii guests, and — within seven episodes — some of them will be dead, or served medium-rare, with Mike White holding the carving knife.”
Out now in The Spectator, my reflection on The White Lotus. Give it a read!
