Best New Movies and Shows on Netflix for September 24th, 2022

Lou (2022)

Genre: Action, Crime, Drama
Director: Anna Foerster
Cast: Jurnee Smollett, Logan Marshall-Green, Allison Janney
Writer: Maggie Cohn, Jack Stanley
Runtime: 107 min

This new action movie from Bad Robot and producer J.J. Abrams has received fairly mixed reviews thus far but there’s plenty of reasons to give it a try this weekend.

Here’s what you can expect from the new movie:

“A mysterious loner living a quiet life with her dog battles the elements and her own dark past when a neighbor’s little girl is kidnapped during a storm.”

Human Capital (2019)

Genre: Drama
Director: Marc Meyers
Cast: Liev Schreiber, Marisa Tomei, Peter Sarsgaard
Writer: Stephen Amidon, Oren Moverman
Runtime: 98 min

Stranger Things star Maya Hawke is among the cast for this recently released independent movie released by Vertical Entertainment and DirecTV Cinema.

The movie first premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival and is about what happens when two families collide after their children begin a relationship that leads to a tragic accident.

At the time of release, FilmThreat praised the performances and director, while the Los Angeles Times ultimately concluded that various storylines were gripping but petered out.

Thai Cave Rescue (Limited Series)

Genre: Adventure, Drama, Thriller
Cast: Thaneth Warakulnukroh, Papangkorn Lerkchaleampote, Pratya Patong
Runtime: 60 mins

While Amazon recently covered this gripping real-world story, it couldn’t do so in the way that Netflix’s arguably more authentic version was able to.

How’s how Netflix describes the new six-episode miniseries:

“Inspired by the incredible true story of the Thai youth soccer team who got trapped in one of the most dangerous cave systems on Earth, and the extraordinary efforts by their families, the people of Thailand, and volunteers from all over the world, as they fight against both nature and time to save them.

From directors Baz Poonpiriya & Kevin Tancharoen, and writers Dana Ledoux Miller & Michael Russell Gunn and the team that brought you Crazy Rich Asians.”
