Country Singer Bailey finds herself out on her ear when her struggling band decides they need a refresh. She stumbles into an unlikely job as a nanny to five kids who lost their mother a couple of years prior. With zero experience looking after children and the family having nine previous nannies, Bailey must find ways to engage with the kids through her music and unorthodox childcaring tactics. In an almost modern-day ‘Sound of Music’ sort of way, it turns out the five kids and their good-looking cowboy dad are quite musical. Bailey is certainly no Julie Andrews but has she finally found the band she’s been looking for? Starring Katharine McPhee and Eddie Cibrian.

The ecological crisis starts with the ocean in this documentary from director and cinematographer Ali Tabrizi. Delivering a shocking insight into the fishing industries and the impact over-fishing is having on the environment, the film is hard-hitting. Not everybody is impressed by the film though. In fact, the US ‘National Fisheries Institute’ (NFI) has launched a campaign against what it calls “Vegan Propaganda” on Netflix even stating they; “…have requested Netflix create a ‘propaganda’ tab on its website for ‘films based on exaggeration, fabrications and conspiracy theories.” in a recent press release. Let’s see if that becomes a thing then. We’re pretty certain Paltrow’s works would fit snugly into that category, for sure.
