We’re Watching: 7 Days in Hell

This tennis mockumentary came out a while ago, but I only finally watched it this week. It did not disappoint. It’s quick – it’s only 43 minutes – but very funny, and some of the comedic timing is excellent. (I particularly enjoyed Lena Dunham’s delivery.) Well worth a watch!
