Normal People ★★★½

"Normal People" is a television series, and not even an especially cinematic one, meaning it doesn't belong on a platform whose very name is derived from a display technique required to present films intended for the cinema on a TV screen of different aspect ratio without removing part of the frame - please people; without rules, society collapses to anarchy.

But on its own merits, it's a fairly by the book romantic drama with excellent production value and acting.
