Have you finished binge-viewing House of Cards yet? 

This week's entry of New To Netflix is the usual grab-bag of independent and foreign fare, speckled award winners, some cult Canadian stuff, and a couple of remakes. We start at the 2013 Cannes Palme D'Or award winner with more run time than hyped lesbian sex, and we end on a workmanlike biopic with some exceptional acting that ended up bagging a few Academy Awards in 2005. Have at it.


Perhaps this film was exceptional in that its main character is exceptionally normal. Sure she experiments with her sexuality at a young age, and ends up emotionally satisfied and devastated at points, but looking at her journey of a decade or so feels real because her only large obstacle or insurmountable challenge is life itself.

Blue Is The Warmest Colour will not suffer too much on a smaller screen, so nows your time to catch up with it.

Will all of these be available in UK Netflix region or will I have to use something like to watch the content for the Netflix above in the UK ?

Each film is from a different territory, there is some overlap here and there. How you physically or digitally find yourself in each territory is up to you.

That is Paul Rudd by the way.

Fixed. That's a David Gordon Green slipup on my part.!
