Between movie theaters, VOD, Redbox, Netflix and the rest of the streaming platforms, a lot of content dropped this week. I went through and found some of the best options you can watch this weekend.
Let Him Go
As George (Kevin Costner) and Margaret (Diane Lane) try to adapt to life without their son, they begin to see that their daughter-in-law and grandson’s life might be in danger. This intense thriller is packed with a remarkable performance from Lesley Manville. Check out my review.
Shadow in the Cloud
Maude Garrett is trying to overcome an all-male crew who questions why she is on their flight, a mysterious presence trying to take the plane, all while trying to accomplish the secret mission she has in place. Shadow in the Cloud is a wild ride starring Chloë Grace Mortez.
Malcolm & Marie
Netflix: “When filmmaker Malcolm (John David Washington) and his girlfriend Marie (Zendaya), return home from a movie premiere and await his film’s critical response, the evening takes a turn as revelations about their relationship surface, testing the couple’s love.”
The New York Times Presents: Framing Britney Spears
Pop fans shouldn’t miss this latest installment of The New York Times Presents. It looks at the princess of pop, Britney Spears, from her days at the Mickey Mouse Club to her recent conservatorship battles. You’ll likely finish this watch with a deeper understanding of the #FreeBritney movement.
Amazon: “Bliss is a mind-bending love story following Greg (Owen Wilson) who, after recently being divorced and then fired, meets the mysterious Isabel (Salma Hayek), a woman living on the streets and convinced that the polluted, broken world around them is just a computer simulation. Doubtful as first, Greg eventually discovers there may be some truth to Isabel’s wild conspiracy.”
More Than Miyagi: The Pat Morita Story
Pat Morita is most notably known as Mr. Miyagi, his character in The Karate Kid, but he was much more than that. This takes a look at his life including his difficult upbringing, the typecasting he faced in Hollywood and his battle with alcoholism.
