Hockey is the last beacon of hope in Beartown and being responsible for it is a heavy burden. The day of the semi-final match is also the catalyst for a violent act that will leave a young girl traumatized and a town in turmoil.
...the show distinguishes itself much earlier-as a patient portrait of a stiflingly small place with a long memory; an investigation into the perils of masculinity; an icy Scandinavian take on Friday Night Lights...
The ability to communicate to the audience that there's more at stake than just a hockey game or a season is what will make viewers continue to watch Beartown - though the hockey scenes aren't bad, either.
Takes the honesty of Friday Night Lights to an even deeper and much darker level. The five-part drama, based on the 2017 novel by Fredrik Backman, floored me with its realism, as it digs into the people of a struggling community.
It makes no difference in the consistent power of Beartown... that every crucial element of its drama, every crisis, every resolution, is familiar and entirely predictable. There are reasons films like this keep showing up.
