Two literary screen events aired over the holiday weekend, and perhaps — if your weather was like Iowa’s — you had plenty of time to watch them versus doing anything outside.

But if not, the reviews are a-plenty for each.

Rotten Tomatoes, as of this morning, had an impressive 96 percent critical approval rating for the adaptation of Elena Ferrante’s novel The Lost Daughter (audiences were much cooler, at 43 percent).

The Lost Daughter, directed by Maggie Gyllenhaal and starring Olivia Colman and Dakota Johnson, is out in select theaters and available on Netflix.

Harry Potter 20th Anniversary: Return to Hogwarts had a much smaller sample size, so we’re leery of declaring it better reviewed, but the critical rating as of Friday night was 100 percent, with a 91 percent audience score.

It’s available on the streaming service HBO Max.
