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:

For films this week we have the crime drama American Me where three friends born in poverty create their own capitalist dream as powerful gang members but time in prison makes one of them consider a fresh beginning. Miss Sloane is a political thriller that follows a Capitol Hill lobbyist who takes on the most powerful opponent of her career – but soon learns that winning may come at too high a price. We also have the Mexican comedy Tell Me When where workaholic Will puts his humdrum life in LA on hold to fulfill his grandpa’s last wish: visiting Mexico City’s most iconic sights and falling in love. The sci-fi thriller Stowaway where a three-person crew on a mission to Mars face an impossible choice when an unplanned passenger jeopardises the lives of everyone on board. Finally for films this week we have the Japanese psychological thriller HOMUNCULUS. When a homeless amnesiac awakens from an experimental medical procedure with the ability to see people’s innermost traumas, his vision of truth and illusion starts to blur.

New TV series this week include the fantasy series Shadow and Bone based on the popular series of novels by Leigh Bardugo. Dark forces conspire against orphan mapmaker Alina Starkov when she unleashes an extraordinary power that could change the fate of her war-torn world. Italian sci-fi series Zero follows a shy teen with the power to turn invisible  – but he must get it under control to help defend his neighborhood, putting aside the pursuit of his artistic dream. Finally for TV we have the Thai series Let’s Fight Ghost sees a med student with a supernatural gift cashing in on his abilities by facing off against ghosts – that is until a wandering spirit brings romance instead.

If you enjoy documentaries then we have a few suggestions for you starting with Chadwick Boseman: Portrait of an Artist – this film sees writers, directors and actors coming together to discuss the extraordinary artistic process of the late Chadwick Boseman.
