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:
For film fans this week we have the Korean drama The Handmaiden where a woman is hired as a handmaiden to a Japanese heiress, but secretly she is involved in a plot to defraud her. Horror-comedy The Babysitter: Killer Queen is set two years after the original film where Cole survived a satanic blood cult, but now he’s living another nightmare: high school. Korean film #Alive is the story of a sole survivor who is living in isolation after the rapid spread of an unknown virus has left his city in an ungovernable state. In Les crevettes pailletées [The Shiny Shrimps] an olympic swimming champion is punished for making making homophobic statements on TV by being forced to train an amateur gay water-polo team. Finally for films this week we have the Mexican comedy Dad Wanted [Se busca papá] which sees a tweenager try to cast an actor to play her Dad so that she can enter a BMX competition.
For fans of TV we have Get Organized with The Home Edit where expert home organisers Clea and Joanna help celebrities and everyday clients edit, categorise and contain their clutter to create stunning spaces. In the British comedy series The Duchess single mum Katherine is juggling her career, raising her daughter and pondering getting pregnant with her ex. In the Spanish anime The Idhun Chronicles an orphaned boy fights his parents’ killer to save a planet. Finally for TV this week we have The Barrier [La Valla] a weekly Spanish sci-fi series where one family’s fight for survival in a future dystopian Madrid illustrates the disparity between two worlds separated by a fence.
For documentary fans this week we have My Octopus Teacher which sees a filmmaker forge an unusual friendship with an octopus living in a South African kelp forest, learning as the animal shares the mysteries of her world. In Screened Out filmmaker Jon Hyatt talks to kids, parents and experts about the impact and chilling consequences of constant smartphone screen time in today’s world. The Social Dilemma is a documentary-drama hybrid which explores the dangerous human impact of social networking, with tech experts sounding the alarm on their own creations. La Línea: Shadow of Narco looks at the Spanish beach town of La Línea, which is a stone’s throw from Africa and is a drug smuggling hot spot.
For kids and family this week we have season 2 of Buddi, a preschool programme where the cute little buddies learn about the world around them through friendship and fun. Julie and the Phantoms tells the story of Julie who lost her passion for music when she lost her mom. But when three ghostly guys appear and lift her spirits, they decide to start a band together! StarBeam, season 2, tells of 8-year-old Zoey who has the power to transform into StarBeam, a kid-sized superhero. She saves the day, every day! Finally for kids we have the film Pets United where a street-smart dog and a pampered cat join forces to lead a pack of unlikely heroes when their city is seized by its evil mayor — and his robot army.
