The Best New Additions on Netflix in America This Week (13th November 2020)

If you want to know what to watch this weekend then we’re here to give you the lowdown on this week’s biggest and best additions on Netflix USA. Here we will give you our top picks as well as a full list of everything added to the streaming service in the last week. So here are our top picks from this week’s additions on Netflix USA:

It’s been a rather quiet week this week although we do have a few additions to tell you about. For films this week we have a new Netflix Christmas Film Jingle Jangle: A Christmas Journey. The film is a musical adventure that follows Jeronicus Jangle – a once-great inventor who has lost his belief in himself and his inventions – but he stumbles upon a second chance when his granddaughter comes to town for the holidays. Indian film Ludo tells four very different stories that all have one eccentric criminal in common. Fruitvale Station is a drama based on real events that recounts the final hours of Oscar Grant, shot by San Francisco transit police on New Year’s Day, 2009. In What We Wanted a couple struggling with fertility issues go on holiday to a Sardinian resort but the family next door only adds to the tension of their already struggling marriage.

We also have three Italian films added this week. First is a new Netflix Film The Life Ahead. In the film a Holocaust survivor running a daycare business who forms an unlikely friendship with a bitter street kid when she takes him in after he robs her. The other two films are both from 1955: The Sign of Venus is a romcom where a single woman sets about finding herself a partner after receiving a favorable romantic fortune; Scandal in Sorrento is another romcom which sees a man return to his home to find a woman renting it – but when she refuses to leave, he finds himself drawn to her.

TV this week includes a new family-friendly romantic drama DASH & LILY based on the book series by Rachel Cohn. The series sees two opposites who meet via a diary left in a bookstore; over time they give each other more and more dares and end up falling for each other. But will romance be on the cards for Christmas? The animated war drama The Liberator tells the true story of some of the most heroic fighters of the European invasion in World War II. This week has also seen the addition of American Horror Story season 9 which is set in a Summer Camp in 1984 when a deranged murderer has escaped and is heading to the camp… And if you like something a bit more relaxed and silly then the new comedy sketch show Aunty Donna’s Big Ol’ House of Fun may be of interest to you!

Netflix UK has also had some documentaries that may interest you. A popular addition this week is the 8-episode Trial 4 which follows Sean K. Ellis, charged as a teenager with murdering a police officer, as he fights to prove his innocence while exposing police corruption and systemic racism. A Lion in the House is a series that was filmed over six years and follows five families as they navigate the treatments and traumas associated with childhood cancer. And finally for documentaries we have the Brazilian Portuguese film The Beginning of Life 2: Outside which looks at ways of getting youngsters into the out in nature as the world becomes more and more urban.
