Colin Farrell as a Vampire and Other Required Summer Viewing

The Grown-Up Fantasy
Ondine
Ondine takes a whimsical premise—an Irish fisherman (Colin Farrell) falls for a woman who might be a mermaid—and adds a sinister drug subplot and a haunting soundtrack by Sigur Rós keyboardist Kjartan Sveinsson. Yes, it's dark, but the director, Neil Jordan, made Interview With the Vampire, not Twilight.

The Comedy
Get Him to the Greek
Russell Brand revives Aldous Snow, the eccentric rock star from Forgetting Sarah Marshall, for a transatlantic adventure with a young record exec (Jonah Hill). Comedic spin-offs are usually bad ideas (Evan Almighty, anyone?), but this is every bit as funny as the film that inspired it.

The Documentary
Joan Rivers: A Piece of Work
Trailblazing comedian, plastic-surgery addict, fame-obsessed reality-TV star—Joan Rivers is all these things, and she knows it. In this compelling documentary spanning her five-decade career, she's brutally (and hilariously) animated—even if her face isn't.

The (Reality) TV Show
Work of Art: The Next Great Artist
Developed by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bravo's latest competition series follows 14 artists—mentored by legendary dealer Simon de Pury—as they battle for a solo show. It inspires introspective questions like "What is art?" and not-so-heady ones like "Are these people insane?"
