The 2024 Tribeca Film Festival kicks off today in New York. For the next two weeks, a bevvy of films from around the world will make their debuts. Here are four movies and one TV show that are sure to have everyone talking.

 

FEDERER: TWELVE FINAL DAYS

This deeply intimate documentary follows the tennis great in the final days of his career. In addition to reflecting on his decision to retire, Federer’s contemporaries—including John McEnroe, Rafael Nadal, Novak Djokovic, Andy Murray, and Bjorn Borg—discuss what makes him such a unique athlete. The film makes its world premiere at Tribeca, but will be available to stream on Amazon Prime on June 20.

 

FIREBRAND

Of Henry VIII’s six wives, Katherine Parr often gets the least attention—mostly because her marriage to the king didn’t meet a violent end. But in this period drama, she finally gets her due as a strong-willed woman in a deeply complicated marriage.

 

PRESUMED INNOCENT

This eight-part Apple TV+ series is the next big prestige drama. Based on a New York Times bestselling novel, produced by J.J. Abrams, and conceived by David E. Kelley, the show stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a prosecutor tied up in a murder case. The show also stars Ruth Negga and Peter Sarsgaard.

 

DIANE VON FURSTENBERG: WOMAN IN CHARGE

DVF was legendary for designing a new type of dress, and living a glamorous life of partying with A-list friends. But that doesn’t mean she didn’t have to survive some dark periods, from the death of her first husband to the near loss of her business. Woman in Charge tracks her wild life, and features insights from some of her famous friends, including Oprah, Hillary Rodham Clinton, Gloria Steinem, Fran Lebowitz, Marc Jacobs, and Edward Eninful.

 

THE FRENCH ITALIAN

Poised to become the cult-comedy of the summer, The French Italian satirizes the cutthroat world of New York apartment complexes, and how difficult it can be to put up with annoying neighbors.
