Feminist Culture Club: Russian Doll

Russian Doll may be stuck in a time loop, but this endlessly inventive series never repeats itself as it teeters on a seesaw of shifting tones – from fatally funny to mournfully sad – that is balanced with exhilarating moxie by an astonishing Natasha Lyonne.

For our May Feminist Culture Club, we’ll be discussing Russian Doll, the new Netflix comedy-drama created by Natasha Lyonne (who also stars), Amy Poehler, and Lesyle Headland. In twisted Groundhog Day style, Nadia keeps reliving the day that she heads to an NYC party to celebrate her 36th birthday and dies, in various ways. Regularly reviewed as 2019’s best show so far, the shifting tone, investment in characters, inherent mystery and weirdness, make this compelling and compulsive viewing.

We can’t tell you more or we’ll give too much away. Just watch the first series, then let’s unpick this together and figure out what its really about.

Feminist Culture Club is our monthly book club with a difference. We include podcasts and articles, fiction and non-fiction, short stories and TV series, anything that catches our attention that has been created by women. Since we launched, we’ve discussed the work of Hannah Gadsby, Ali Wong, Lisa Congdon, Chimanda Ngozi Adichie, Jill Soloway, Nigel Poor, Amy Sherman Palladino and more.
