On Friday, you can expect a huge dump of new releases and we’ll be here to take you through all the best ones.


A Secret Love (2020) N

Genre: Documentary
Director: Chris Bolan

Needing for a dose of happiness and hope for your mid-week lul? A Secret Love will help fill that gap.

The heartwarming doc takes us back through the lives of two older women who have spent most of their lives loving each other in secret.

Reviews for this one are solid thus far. Don’t miss it!


Nadiya’s Time to Eat (Season 1) N

Genre: Cooking, Reality
Cast: Nadiya Hussain

Nadiya Hussain may be an unknown to many but any fans of The Great British Baking Show will know she not only appeared but went onto win one of the previous seasons.

This BBC production arrives on Netflix US today under the Netflix Original banner and sees Nadiya cooking up all sorts of delicious dishes that you can follow along with at home.


Murder to Mercy: The Cyntoia Brown Story (2019)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Daniel H. Birman

If you’ve enjoyed any of the big Netflix Original crime docs that have appeared over the years, this is another one to add to the list.

It looks into the case of a 16-year-old who was sentenced to life imprisonment, and the reflection that took place after she was put away.

Reviews for this one are highly mixed, which is probably due to the subject matter rather than its quality. We’d be interested to hear your thoughts in the comments though!
