Amazon Prime welcomes a slew of new original programming to its streaming platform in March. Kate Beckinsdale stars in Prime Original series The Widow, about a woman who ventures across the Congo in search of her lost husband, risking her life against unstable government and mercenary rulers. On a lighter note, Prime Original animated series Costume Quest follows four friends whose Halloween costumes contain secret, transformative powers that allow them to battle candy-crazed monsters. Amazon also brings a Prime Original movie to the table this month with Cold War, an Oscar-nominated drama about two lovers who are separated in war-torn Poland in the 1950s.

New on Amazon Prime: Editor’s picks


Joshua Rofe’s Lorena presents the salacious case of Lorena and John Wayne Bobbitt. It’s a story everyone knows—Lorena cut off her husband’s penis—but most people stop at the headline. Rofe doesn’t. Lorena goes beyond the case to look at the larger epidemic of domestic violence in America. With interviews from the Bobbitts, doctors, lawyers, advocates, friends, and family, Lorena brings depth and context to a subject that is more than just tabloid fodder. —Eddie Strait

The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel season 2

The second season of The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel is good TV. It’s a highly entertaining show that is invested in developing complex characters. The series is set in the ’50s, but you almost forget that fact because Amy Sherman-Palladino’s stories are set in little their own little fictional bubbles where even bad events are seen through rose-colored glasses. The sun shines, a Barbra Streisand song plays, and Miriam “Midge” Maisel walks out in an amazing color-coordinated outfit. How does it all come together so perfectly? It is, as Midge would say, “witchcraft.” —Tiffany Kelly

Picnic at Hanging Rock

Based on the 1967 novel by Joan Lindsay, cinephiles will likely be familiar with Picnic at Hanging Rock from Peter Weir’s 1975 adaptation of the same name. Both versions focus on the disappearance of a group of students and a governess from an Australian girls school called Appleyard College during a picnic on Valentine’s Day, 1900. Where the miniseries and the film diverge is in how they chronicle the aftermath of these events. While the film resolves little of the mystery, choosing to focus more on the effects the women’s disappearance has on the school and its denizens, the miniseries expands the story to include more from Lindsay’s novel, providing additional backstory and answering some of the questions the movie ignores. —Chris Osterndorf
