Would anyone be interested in a list of recommendations for the UK Netflix? Most of the lists I’ve found on line are out of date or for the US Netflix.
I just watched “Breathe In” on UK Netflix. It was very gentle and intense all at once, and of course Felicity Jones was absolutely amazing. I feel like she’s a very underrated actress at the moment, particularly here in the UK. All four leads were very impressive, actually, with Guy Pierce as the lovely if misguided male lead.
The soundtrack was the movie’s best part, particularly in a film so focused on music. At times the plot was a little over the place - it was very much a slice of life type thing, not particularly plot-driven - a little like Joanna Hogg’s “Archipelago” in that sense.
Very enjoyable! I’d definitely recommend it if you’re looking for some quiet weekend viewing.
