"Now and Then" is a multi-layered thriller that explores the differences between youthful aspirations and the reality of adulthood, when the lives of a group of college best friends are forever changed after a celebratory weekend ends up with one of them dead. Now, 20 years later, the remaining five are reluctantly reunited by a threat that puts their seemingly perfect worlds at risk.

You will of course need a $4.99 per month Apple TV+ subscription to enjoy Now and Then although the streaming service is also part of the Apple One subscription bundle, too. Anyone who is already paying for Apple Arcade, Apple Music, and other Apple services should definitely give Apple One some thought.
