A popular film on Netflix USA this week is A California Christmas where a wealthy charmer poses as a ranch hand to get a hardworking farmer to sell her family’s land before Christmas. In the stand-up comedy special Vir Das: Outside In – The Lockdown Special stage banter takes on a different — deeper — meaning as the comedian performs online shows to homebound viewers worldwide from his Mumbai residence. Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom is based on Pulitzer Prize winner August Wilson’s play; and sees tensions rise between Ma Rainey, her ambitious horn player and the white management determined to control the uncontrollable “Mother of the Blues”. In the horror Incarnate a scientist with the ability to enter the subconscious minds of the possessed must save a young boy from the grips of a demon with powers never seen before, while facing the horrors of his past. Finally for films this week we have Lee Daniels’ The Butler which follows the life of Cecil Gaines as he serves eight presidents during his tenure as a butler at the White House.

Netflix has also had some documentaries that may interest you including Ma Rainey’s Black Bottom: A Legacy Brought to Screen where Viola Davis, Denzel Washington, George C. Wolfe and more share the heart, soul and history that brought August Wilson’s timeless play to the screen. In the intimate documentary Anitta: Made In Honório Brazilian pop queen Anitta opens up about fame, family and her fierce work ethic, revealing the woman behind the hits. BREAK IT ALL: The History of Rock in Latin America Soda Stereo, Café Tacvba, Aterciopelados and others feature in this 50-year history of Latin American rock through dictatorships, disasters and dissent. In The Ripper investigators and witnesses recall how a modern-day Jack the Ripper terrorised the north of England during the late 1970s, and they also examine how errors in the investigation may have made it easier for him to claim more victims. Also added this week was volume 2 of Song Exploder.

TV this week includes Marvel Anime: Wolverine where Logan, aka mutant X-Man Wolverine, is on a quest to reclaim the love of his life — whose crime lord father is planning an arranged marriage for her.  In Marvel Anime: X-Men the X-men who are still grieving over the death of Phoenix (Jean Grey), are investigating a case of a missing mutant girl in Northern Japan. This leads them to a mysterious virus that turns mutants into monsters. U-Men and the Inner Circle want it. In The Netflix Afterparty: The Best Shows of The Worst Year David Spade, Fortune Feimster and London Hughes welcome guests from “Tiger King,” “Emily in Paris,” “The Queen’s Gambit” and more. Finally for TV this week we have Tiny Pretty Things which follows the world of an elite ballet academy, and charts the rise and fall of young adults who live far from their homes, each standing on the verge of greatness or ruin. We also have season 2 of Norwegian Original Home for Christmas.
