If in doubt titles will be listed simply as [Original] in the full list at the end of the post and as ‘available in selected regions’ within the post.

Feel The Beat

This week gets off to a flying start with a slightly cheesy- we’ve heard it all before- family movie. This light watching/kid entertaining 1hour and 49 minutes. The story is not exactly original by way of city girl returns home to country life after a big audition sees her career as a professional dancer take a nose-dive. April, played by Sofia Carson arrogant and self-centred and of course wishes she doesn’t have to interact with her old life at all but as she bumps into those from her past, she soon finds herself roped into teaching dancing to a small seemingly talentless group of children. The aim – to win the championship and overcome obstacles that life throws at us all. She may or may not find love in amongst all this, we don’t know this but previous experience tells us that is almost a given, even in 2020 *rolls eyes. At least we can be grateful for some family-friendly content during the global pandemic that has so many of us STILL stuck indoors.

One Way To Tomorrow

What would you do if you were stuck in a train carriage with one stranger for a 14-hour journey? You can’t exactly sit in silence for that length of time but once you begin to open up, all manner of things can happen. Dilan Cicek Deniz and Metin Akdulger play the two strangers that meet on the train. They soon discover that they have more in common than first appeared. As they confess their thoughts and their actions of past lives and intentions, the journey becomes a cathartic off-loading of their worries leaving them with nothing to hide and a blank slate. The perfect base to start a relationship from, right?

The Sinner

Fans of ‘The Sinner’ have eagerly awaited a season three to land on Netlflix and the wait is finally over. Jessica Biel’s eight-episode thriller series has featured two completely unrelated stories in each of its seasons. Season One was all about that incident at the beach, a crime committed by ‘Cora’ (Jessica Biel). Season two saw the detective try to solve the mystery of ‘Julian’ (Elisha Henig) who was accused of murdering his parents on a road trip. This third season sees Harry Ambrose (Bill Pullman) return as the detective that sees more than meets the eye. This time he’s investigating the scene of a car that seems to have suspiciously been thrown from the road in a freak accident. The driver Jamie Burns (Matt Bomer) has a past and the detective is not prepared to leave it alone.

Disclosure

The first of our two documentaries arriving this week ‘Disclosure’ takes an unprecedented journey of discovery examining how transgender people have been depicted on our screens through the decades. The documentary features some leading names of trans activists and creatives thinkers including Laverne Cox, Lilly Wachowski, Yance Ford, MJ Rodriguez, Jamie Clayton, and Chaz Bono. Those featured, share their response to some of the worlds most beloved on-screen moments and examine how Hollywood has played its part in bringing trans awareness both good and bad.

Athlete A

The second Netflix documentary to land this week is ‘Athlete A’. The film looks at the scandal of the USA gymnastics team as young women came together to expose the team therapist and an underlying abuse of female gymnasts that had spanned two decades. The women were silenced by the management of the team in one of the biggest cover-ups of a generation. Examining the facts of the case and interviewing the survivors as they prefer to be called (note not victims), filmmakers Bonni Cohen and Jon Shenk deliver an important event in history that exposes those responsible and sends a message to those who feel they are beyond reproach in a bid that society will never allow this to happen again.
