'Pieces of a Woman' Film Review: Vanessa Kirby, Shia LaBeouf Explore Shades of Grief

Venice Film Festival: The film from Cannes-winning director Kornel Mundruczó is an extended meditation on coping with unimaginable loss

For many of us, this Labor Day weekend will be the first in recent memory in which we will not attend a barbeque, crack open a cold one with the boys, or go for one last beach day of the season — unless done so in outdoor settings and in small groups with the proper social-distance measures in place, of course. But allow us at TheWrap to pose an alternative: Stay inside and watch TV instead. Here are 17 options spaced out from Friday to Monday that just might keep you entertained.
