A Monthly Culture Matrix For the Cosmopolitan Traveler

Patria

Streaming on HBO Max Film & TV

An adaptation of Fernando Aramburu’s 2016 novel, Patria, which sold more than a million copies and has been translated into over 30 languages, is now streaming on HBO Max. Told through the perspectives of two families, this eight-part Spanish-language drama covers the 30-year period of brutal armed conflict between the Basque-separatist organization E.T.A. and the Guardia Civil, the oldest law-enforcement agency in Spain. It’s a complex history that is conveyed with nuance and proficiency, and the two lead actors, Elena Irureta and Ane Gabarain, excellently anchor the show with their impassioned performances. —Bridget Arsenault
