Euphoria, a popular teen drama series, features some incredible songs that will blow your mind.
Zendaya, the directors, and HBO all deserve a lot of credit for this show. It’s expertly crafted and written, with a pivotal performance from Zendaya, who eats her role as Rue alive.
She absorbs it, and despite being one of the world’s most recognizable faces, you can’t help but notice Rue.
Cinematography is the first topic I’d like to discuss. When Marcell Rev arrived, he wanted to make this an opportunity to show off his incredible cinematography.
The show and Marcel Rev’s work is a masterclass in cinematography, from the colors to the views (especially the transition from Rue using drugs to her at a party and Jules emerging from the sea).
It goes beyond just being a compilation of shots and becomes a genuine piece of art. The acting comes next, of course. Everyone brings their A-game, from Zendaya to Storm Reid, Hunter Schaeffer to Maude Apatow.
In an era where acting isn’t really a priority anymore, with shows favoring looks over talent, it’s a breath of fresh air to see a show where even characters with limited screen time put on fantastic performances.
This is what happens in real life, and it’s what this generation’s teenagers and young adults go through. The show definitely shows us that.
Do you know what the best part of this series is? The songs! Every episode features a unique and fantastic tune with new lyrics.
Do you want to know what the songs are about? You’re probably only here for that, but let us give you a quick rundown of the show’s idea.
Premise Of The Euphoria
The protagonist has several disorders/mental health concerns and, unfortunately, resorts to unhealthy remedies. I think the show does an excellent job of capturing the joyful feelings that come with being under the influence.
In a nutshell, the series follows a group of high school students as they deal with topics such as drugs, sex, and violence.
The story follows the friendship of two young girls, Rue, a recovering addict, and Jules, a newcomer to town, as they strive to find their place in the world.
