First up, here’s what’s new on Netflix this weekend:

Death at a Funeral (2010)

Genre: Comedy
Director: Neil LaBute
Cast: Keith David, Loretta Devine, Peter Dinklage, Ron Glass
Runtime: 92 min

First up is Sony Pictures 2010 comedy hit Death at a Funeral. Although reviews from both critics and audiences are split on this movie, the all-star cast alone is worthy of the price of admission.

The movie is about a funeral that turns into a debacle of an exposed family where secrets and misplaced bodies are plentiful.


Menashe (2017)

Genre: Drama
Director: Joshua Z Weinstein
Cast: Menashe Lustig, Yoel Falkowitz, Hershy Fishman, Ruben Niborski
Runtime: 82 min
Language: Yiddish

From A24 Pictures, Menashe which is filmed entirely in Yiddish touched down on Netflix today.

Released three years ago, the movie is about the ultra-orthodox Jewish community in Brooklyn, New York. It looks specifically at the relationship between a father and a son looking at the complexities of parenthood and faith.

We also saw a new stand-up special added today from Vir Das. It’s Vir’s third Netflix Original stand-up where this time, he celebrates the history of his home country, India.
