Netflix’s Uncorked began streaming on March 27, and it’s a much-welcome addition to our social distancing binge list.
Directed by Insecure showrunner Prentice Penny, the family drama stars Courtney B. Vance, Niecy Nash, and Mamoudou Athie, as it follows a young man from Memphis who passionately fights to fulfill his dream of becoming a master sommelier. The only thing holding him back is his unsupportive father, who wants him to take over the family barbecue business instead.
What Uncorked does so effortlessly is tell the story of a family sans the stereotypical trauma that Hollywood has historically placed upon many Black films. Instead, it surveys their relatable dynamics while seamlessly combining three unexpected ingredients: wine, barbecue, and hip-hop. The first scene offers the contrast of the picturesque scenes of a vineyard while Yo Gotti’s “Juice” pumps in the background. The words that came to my mind? “That’s different.” (But in the best way.)
Perhaps one of the best examples of this is when main character Elijah explains wine to his love interest by likening the different offerings to famous rappers. (Chardonnay is Jay-Z, Pinot Grigio equals Kanye West, and Riesling is Drake.) But what underscores this even more is the films’s soundtrack, filled with music by popular artists like Moneybagg Yo, Key Glock, and Blac Youngsta.
Below, we’ve highlighted the entire soundtrack, mixed with musicians that you may (or may not) have heard of that will be welcome additions to your quarantine playlist.
