TV: Élite – Short Stories: Patrick

Premiered: December 23, 2021

On: Netflix

Starring: Manu Ríos, Junior Mbengani, Xoán Fórneas, Carla Díaz, Martina Cariddi, Iván Pellicer, Daniel da Silva, Patu Fernández & Diego Martín

In a set of short stories linking seasons four and five of Élite, Patrick (Manu Ríos) goes through a self-discovery journey after taking many drugs at a Christmas party.

Patrick needs some alone time and finds a cabin in the woods where he can have solitude over winter break. When a group of gay men invite themselves to party in his cabin, Patrick’s drug trips take him on a journey with his family.

This is the best set of short stories from this group or the one before. While the story deepens Patrick’s character and expands upon his emotional layers, the production of it makes it even better. The lighting and camera angles of the drug trips give the story a specific point of view that’s devastating and beautiful.

Final say: A perfect way to enhance Patrick. ★★★★★
