Apple TV+ new “Roar” shows the universal struggles of eight women up against toxic masculinity and prejudice starring Nicole Kidman
Starring Nicole Kidman, Issa Rae, Cynthia Erivo, Alison Brie, Betty Gilpin, Merritt Wever, Meera Syal, Kara Hayward and Fivel Stewart, the upcoming series will take the audience through the struggles women place in various social and gender roles of a wife, mother, corporate boss, and the most important role of all, a woman.
The first trailer of “Roar” gives a glimpse of the eight stories that capsulate the challenges and prejudice women face around the world, irrespective of their color or creed. The eight unique stories of a woman who eats pictures, a mother with a violent child, a patriarchal husband, a murdered young woman, an author, a woman who loves horses, an unsatisfied wife, and a woman fed by a duck are likely to resonate with today’s women everywhere.

Spanning genres from magical realism to psychological horror, these eight stand-alone stories feature ordinary women in some pretty extraordinary circumstances. In “Roar,” women eat photographs, date ducks, live on shelves like trophies. And yet, their struggles are universal.
