Trivia

Arabella's pink wig in the first episodes was purposefully selected and dyed as to not suit her face or skin color, and as the series progresses it frays, symbolizing her mental state. See more »

User Reviews

 
Real and raw, bittersweet.
18 January 2021 | by negroswanSee all my reviews

A bleak but honest look at life as a young black woman in modern-day London. The storylines are real and raw and very close to home for many who have encountered sexual assault in any form. In the midst of tackling many devastating topics, I May Destroy You offers a refreshing depiction of friendship, relationships and young adulthood, nuanced with just the right amount of humour and real-life dialogue that does not leave you disconnected or disillusioned, but fully immerses you into Arabella's world.
