New to Streaming This Week (5/31/21), Including ‘We Are Lady Parts’ and ‘Sweet Tooth’

Fern Siegel

Season one of Peacock’s original “We Are Lady Parts,” posits a Muslim female punk band in London looking for a guitarist — and good gigs. Netflix’s “Sweet Tooth” is a fantasy drama about a half-human/half-deer boy. In the DC Comics story, he travels across a post-apocalyptic world, hunted by men who want to kill him.

Anime fans will welcome “Sailor Moon Eternal: The Movie: Part 1/Part 2” premiering on Netflix. It’s the latest film in the franchise; the movie takes place during the Dream Arc in the “Sailor Moon” series.
