22. Pain and Glory (Spain) 7.38
Next in our top 30 best dramas is a heavy story about a former playwright. In old age, the once famous director Salvador Milo feels that the time has come to cast a glance back and summarize his earthly existence. Sores are also obliged to do so, which the doctor identifies in his mortal body in batches.
And although Milo is still a respected and honored person among the public, he himself is less and less sure of this. Once he gets an invitation to take part in the re-screening of one of his previous films, a complete remaster of which has been carried out to date. The director recalls that his former friend Federico starred in the lead role, with whom they quarreled in the trash at the end of filming. According to Milo, he played as badly as he could, and all due to the fact that throughout the filming he was constantly on drugs.
After watching the film today, Milo realized that he was unduly biased in his opinion. He decides to make up with Federico and invite him to re-view the painting with him.
Having turned up to a former friend, he apologizes and happily takes heroin, after which the problems of the present cease to worry him, because the drug plunges him into the past to the very top.
23. Dirt (USA) 7.38
The next on the list in our top-30 best drama-2019 is the biolic, filmed along the creative path of heavy, hard and glam metal group Motley Crue since the inception of its founder - Frank Carlton Feranna Jr. .
Frank endured the hardships of the family life of his dissolute mother for a long time, after which he decided to take a bold step. He left home and began to look for his dad to tell how difficult it was for him all these years without his father's love. But his dad, to his great chagrin, sent him away, after which Frank, abandoning his parents' surname, settled into Nikki Sixx.
Then, freed from the burden of family ties, he decided to create a metal band. And the first with whom he began to play tunes of new songs was his best friend at this time - a native of a well-to-do family, Tommy Lee. Later, they are joined by "caverist" with a sugary voice, blond Vince Neal, and a sick guitarist Mick Mars, who looks suspiciously like "Ramsey Bolton" from Game of Thrones.
All three of them became his new family for the following years and together with them he had to break through such thorns and get dirty in such dirt that mom did not grieve. And they had to take a sip of this substance - in full.
24. Dark Waters (US) 7.35
The next drama of 2019 will unveil the dangers behind every Teflon-coated pan. Few people know that fluoroplastic, better known to ordinary people under its patent name - "Teflon", when heated to 260 ° C, begins to emit toxic fumes. And if you heat it up to 400 ° C, it will begin to evaporate with even greater intensity, while releasing perfluoroisobutylene into the atmosphere around itself - an extremely poisonous substance, 10 times more dangerous than phosgene, which was once used in now prohibited bombs - chemical weapons of mass destruction.
Based on SUCH features of the product, it is not surprising that once someone should have been interested in whether the production of this substance is really so safe for the environment and the workers involved in its production, as the manufacturing company represents.
The most interesting thing is that the lawyer Robert Billot, a lawyer who worked for this very company, started digging dirt on the DuPont company, which owns the patent for the production and distribution of this material.
19 years ago, a man burst into his office claiming that he was his distant relative, who was slowly but surely being poisoned by the company for which he worked. At first Billot did not attach much importance to his words, but then, nevertheless, decided to visit his native land and make sure that the "relative" was telling the truth with his own eyes.
What he witnessed, and gave rise to the beginning of one of the longest and most expensive processes in the history of earthly civilization. As it turned out, from the 60s of the last century to 2012, the company deliberately poisoned the environment and its employees in production.
What does "knowingly" mean? This means that she knew that the substance involved in the production process PFOA (in our opinion - PFOA - perfluorooctanoic acid) is harmful to health and the environment, but she was silent about this information, deliberately poisoning her workers and water bodies located near production facilities.
But nothing, stubborn Robert Billot will not fear evil and will punish everyone. Even if he has to ruin his career in the bud and turn his life into a solid hell.
25. Farewell (USA) 7.33

In China, it turns out, it is not forbidden that the patient is not informed of his own diagnosis. Therefore, the doctor with a pure heart sends Granny home, telling her that she had a minor cold, which will soon pass.
He himself quickly recruits the closest relative of his grandmother and informs him of his grandmother's illness. Then everything started to turn. Granny's children had gone all the way. Everyone already has their own family and children, and everyone, having learned about the incurable illness of the grandmother, wants to move in to say goodbye to the head of the family while she is still alive.
But, that's bad luck. Such an unexpected "pilgrimage" of relatives to their father's house will certainly arouse suspicion in my grandmother. But the cunning Chinese did not lose face here either. They quickly organize the wedding of one of Granny's grandchildren to make the global family convention seem understandable.
Surely this "farewell wedding" will look very touching. Especially with all the fact that Granny is not going to die so soon.
26. Jewels, Uncut (USA) 7.31

27. Downton Abbey (UK, USA) 7.30
The next film in our top of the best dramas for 2019 will be of interest only to those who are familiar with the series of the same name. It is clear that if the ratings of the masterpiece were put by outside citizens, those who are "not in the subject", the rating of the film would be much lower.
A picture tells about several days of the same abbey. All the same actors were invited to the main roles, and even those who dropped out of the series long before its "death".
The current king of Great Britain is going to visit Downton Abbey for a couple of days. Passage, if I may say so. He will tumble in there together with his retinue, with his cooks, butlers and other "lackey brethren." And when everyone in the abbey is already in anticipation of courting and serving his Majesty himself, they are suddenly replaced by regulars from the king's "guard", dooming to vegetation on the sidelines.

If only for all this mouse fuss not to miss the king himself, on whom some civilians are plotting a real attempt.
28. Lighthouse (Canada, USA) 7.30

"Lighthouse attendant" Thomas Wake is an old fart and drunkard. He drove his orderly for household and other needs as best he could, himself, at the same time, without striking a finger. He only does what he drinks, but tries to hang poor Efraim on his ears in the form of the local gloomy tales.
The old man is very superstitious and gives his orderly a code of acceptance and rules, which must not be violated in any case. And Ephraim tries to keep within the limits until 4 months of his duty expire. The next day a launch with a "changing of the guard" should come, so why not send to the next world at least one of the disgusting insolent seagulls, which according to the "code of laws of Thomas Wake" are strictly forbidden to touch.
It would be better if he didn't. Literally on the same night, such a stormy weather reigned at sea that from now on there is no need to dream of any "changing of the guard". Where you can’t get lost in grief with an old fart. Well, where there is booze, there is squirrel. And where the squirrel is, there is sex with mermaids. And there it is already not far from the reels completely.
And the bad weather does not stop and does not stop. And more and more people hunt for the main "light" of the lighthouse. And the old fart won't let him and won't let him. In short, a complete ATAS!
