New on Netflix

No hard feelings

Where to watch: Available for streaming Netflix

Kind: Comedy
Execution time: 1h 43m
Director: Gene Stupnicki
Mold: Jennifer Lawrence, Andrew Barth Feldman, Laura Benanti

Jennifer Lawrence stars in this mischievous and endearing comedy as Maddy, a young woman who juggles her job as an Uber driver and part-time bartender to pay off the house she inherited from her late mother. After her car is towed, Maddy gets the chance of a lifetime: Seduce Percy (Andrew Barth Feldman), the college-aged son of a wealthy couple, on their behalf in exchange for a brand new set of wheels. Simple enough, right? Yeah, that’s what Maddy thought too.

From our review,

Like most funny stories, No hard feelings seems like a bad idea at first. It’s a movie in which Jennifer Lawrence, in her first lead role in a full-length comedy, spends about 103 minutes trying to seduce a socially awkward 19-year-old for financial gain. It’s also extremely funny and a great reminder of just how good J-Law is at lighting up a screen.

Kind: Horror thriller
Execution time: 1h 28m
Director: Samuel Bodin
Mold: Lizzy Caplan, Woody Norman, Antony Starr

This horror thriller from the creator of the scariest show on Netflix follows Peter (Woody Norman), a troubled young boy who – after hearing mysterious banging sounds coming from the walls of his house – tries to find help to uncover a terrible secret that is hidden from him by his parents.

From our review,

Bodin tries to invoke horror with long shots of the film’s few distinctive elements—the aforementioned pumpkin patch, or an old grandfather clock and icebox that each hide a secret passageway—but he doesn’t do much to convey these images as anything powerful or awful. It is like Cobweb He’s in a haunted house where nothing actually happened a long time ago, even though it hides a girl’s voice within its walls.

New to Prime Video

Polite Society

Where to watch: Available for streaming Prime Video

Polite Society sounds like a riotous hour of fun and is one of the films I was most looking forward to streaming after a short limited run in the US. After watching it, be sure to read this interview with the director Polite Society‘small various influences.

The Japanese occupation is in its dying embers, the Chinese Communist Party is on the rise, and Leung’s character is caught in the middle of it all.

Kind: Documentary
Execution time: 1h 32m
Director: Errol Morris
Mold: John le Carré

John le Carré is a personal favorite author of mine. His spy novels are notable for their earthiness – a former spy himself, he had much to draw from – but also for their cynicism towards the callousness of the trade. The esteemed documentarian Errol Morris (The thin blue line) turns its camera to the life of the late, great Le Carré, one of the best and most important writers of the 20th century.

New to Peacock

Ruby Gillman, Teenage Kraken
