Hilarious heartbreaker

If you believe that the edgiest stories are best told with a British accent, you could fall hard for Amazon's newest import, Fleabag.

Phoebe Waller-Bridge stars as the sexually adventurous character nicknamed, yes, Fleabag, in a six-episode BBC adaptation of her own award-winning play.

Fleabag's a heartbreaker, sometimes hilariously so. Knowing that her boyfriend (Hugh Skinner) goes into cleaning mode in her apartment every time they split up, she'll pick a fight just to get her apartment scrubbed - or so she'll be free to sleep with a stranger.

But as much fun as it can be to see her at odds with her successful sister (Sian Clifford) and their artistic stepmother (Olivia Colman, Broadchurch), there turns out to be more to Fleabag's behavior than mere recklessness, and that's where the true heartbreak begins. - Ellen Gray
