Best new movies and TV series on Disney+ Australia: June 2022


Each month, new films and TV shows are added to Disney+‘s Australian library. Here’s Eliza Janssen’s recommendations for the titles most worth watching. Scroll down for the full list of everything arriving on the platform.

Top picks

Fosse/Verdon (June 1)

You might not think you’re familiar with Bob Fosse and Gwen Verdon, but their partnership led to what’s basically the first thing that comes to mind when you think “Broadway”: jazz hands, Liza Minelli, sexy chair routines, black leotards and rakishly tipped hats. He was the philandering choreographer, she his divinely talented muse.

With Sam Rockwell and Michelle Williams showing off their triple-threat status, Fosse/Verdon is one of creator Ryan Murphy’s more respectable adaptations of real cultural conflicts. Their romantic and creative relationship led to fabulous moments like this, where Williams wipes away a frustrated tear like only a Fosse dame could.

Under The Banner Of Heaven (June 8)

Faith, justice, and human nature sprawl under endless Utah skies in this engrossing limited series, starring Andrew Garfield as a Mormon detective. It’s based on the non-fiction book by Jon Krakauer, which staggered me when I picked it up a few years ago.

If it’s anything like that shocking true crime book, the miniseries will simultaneously show us the tragic murder of a devout Mormon woman (Daisy Edgar-Jones) and her infant, whilst explaining how the all-American roots of the religion allow atrocities like this to happen. Garfield’s fictionalised character might end up wondering whether there’s a fundamentalist God watching over all of this by the final episode.

Down With Love (June 10)

A charmingly ribald homage to the Doris Day/Rock Hudson sex comedies of the 1960s, Down With Love is a completely underrated rom-com, starring Renee Zellweger and Ewan McGregor in a retro battle of the sexes.

Director Peyton Reed uses witty framing, period production design, and gut-busting cliches to mock gender relations both then and now. Some cast highlights include Sarah Paulson and David Hyde Pierce as the mismatched “B-couple” storyline: they’re both so gay-coded and delightful to watch.
