New Releases on Netflix: May 12th, 2020

Love is Blind is now on Netflix

It’s Tuesday and Netflix has five new titles for you to watch through. Below, we’ll take you through what’s new and what’s popular on Netflix for May 12th. 

Now let’s take a look at three highlights added today and then move onto the full list of what’s new for May 12th.

Love Is Blind (2019)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Director: Monty Whitebloom, Andy Delaney(co-director)
Cast: Shannon Tarbet, Aidan Turner, Benjamin Walker, Matthew Broderick
Runtime: 89 min

When it comes to the phrase ‘Love is Blind’, you probably most associate it with Netflix’s recent reality series. However, this new addition to the streaming platform is very different.

Featuring a cast of pretty well-known names, Love Is Blind is a comedy about a woman with selective perception who ends up falling in love with a man she cannot see.

Reviews are mixed based on the very limited number on IMDb, so we’d be interested to hear your thoughts down in the comments.


Quartet (2012)

Genre: Comedy, Drama
Director: Dustin Hoffman
Cast: Maggie Smith, Tom Courtenay, Billy Connolly, Pauline Collins
Runtime: 98 min

This excellent comedy from eight years ago is set in a home for retired musicians. While planning for their annual concert, plans are disrupted with a new arrival.

Quartet has streamed on Netflix previously, last appearing from December 2018 till July 2019.


Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt: Kimmy vs. the Reverend (2020)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Claire Scanlon
Cast: Daniel Radcliffe, Ellie Kemper, Carol Kane, Jane Krakowski
Runtime: 80 min

Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt is back, likely for the final time, in the form of this new interactive special.

Kimmy is getting married, but her former captor has other ideas.

In total, there’s three hours and nine minutes to mine through here.

Sadly, not every Netflix region got the new interactive special given problems with dubbing.
