Another week has passed and, in case you missed our social media feeds, we’re here to give you the run down on this week’s additions just in time for your weekend binge sessions. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to Netflix in the UK in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix UK:
As we’ve entered an extended period of ‘lockdown’ due to Coronavirus Covid-19 you may be wondering what to watch on Netflix – well, wonder no longer! Here at New On Netflix we’ve put together a list of what we (with the help of our social media users) think are the best things that have been added to Netflix UK this week.
There have been some great film additions this week with the most popular being Ophelia a retelling of Hamlet from Ophelia’s point of view, and tells of how the lady-in-waiting’s shared love with Denmark’s prince is ruined by treachery and madness. In the Hindi film One Day: Justice Delivered a retired Judge finds and punishes the culprits he could not convict in court, spurring a crime branch officer to investigate. In the motorsport film Bennett’s War a young soldier with the Army Motorcycle Unit, survives an IED explosion during combat and is medically discharged with a broken back and leg. Against all odds he trains to make an impossible comeback as a motocross racer in order to support his family. In the romantic film Roped a progressive town erupts when a traveling rodeo lands within a it’s city limits. The town councilman butts head with a young cowboy on his rise to super stardom so when the councilman’s daughter falls in love with the cowboy their battle becomes deeply personal. The Stand at Paxton County tells the story of a military veteran who comes home to find out that her Dad is being harassed by a Sheriff who wants to confiscate the livestock from their ranch under shady pretences. In the romantic comedy Book Club 4 friends choose to read a raunchy romance novel which inspires changes in their own romantic relationships. Finally for films this week we have the Italian tearjerker 18 Presents when an expectant mother gets diagnosed with terminal cancer (Told you it was a tearjerker) she decides to leave behind 18 sentimental gifts for her unborn daughter to receive every birthday until she reaches womanhood.
The most popular TV series that were added this week include RuPaul’s Secret Celebrity Drag Race which sees Celebs open their hearts to the transformative power of drag and compete in iconic “Drag Race” challenges — with a little help from former contestants. Season 2 of Rust Valley Restorers sees old-school auto collector Mike Hall, his pal Avery Shoaf and son Connor Hall go the extra mile to restore retro cars and hopefully turn a profit. In the french drama The Eddy A French club owner gets caught up with a dangerous gang while dealing with the everyday chaos of running a live music venue in the heart of Paris. In the Chinese animation Scissor Seven a scissor-wielding, hairdressing, bungling quasi-assassin stumbles into a power struggle among feuding factions. Also added this week was season 2 of the Netflix original Dead to Me.
There has only been one documentary added this week which is Becoming an intimate documentary by former First Lady Michelle Obama which looks at her life, hopes and the connections she makes with others during her 2019 book tour for ‘Becoming.’
For the younger family members this week we have Chico Bon Bon: Monkey with a Tool Belt an animated series which encourages STEM learning focusing on construction and how mechanical things work. Whilst in the animated series The Hollow three teens join forces to find a way home after waking up in a strange realm filled with magic portals, perplexing puzzles and vicious beasts.
