Best New Movies & TV Shows on Netflix for September 29th, 2021

Official Secrets (2019)

Genre: Biography, Crime, Drama
Director: Gavin Hood
Cast: Keira Knightley, Matt Smith, Matthew Goode
Writer: Sara Bernstein, Gregory Bernstein, Gavin Hood
Runtime: 112 min

We kickstart our highlights today with the Kiera Knightley-led biopic which seeks to retell the story of the British Intelligence whistleblower Katharine Gun. Her whistleblowing shone a light on illegal spying conducted by the UK and US intelligence agencies.

ScreenDailys’ review of the movie said the movie had “rousing electricity” thanks to the director Gavin Hood and Slant praised the writing of the movie.


No One Gets Out Alive (2021)

Genre: Horror, Mystery, Thriller
Director: Santiago Menghini
Cast: Marc Menchaca, Cristina Rodlo, Victoria Alcock
Writer: Fernanda Coppel, Jon Croker, Adam Nevill
Runtime: 85 min

One of the smaller titles in Netflix’s arsenal of Halloween releases this year is No One Gets Out Alive but early reviews suggest it could be the hidden gem of the holiday season.

The movie sees an immigrant in search of the American dream taking a room in a boarding house but life soon becomes a nightmare.


The Chestnut Man (Season 1)

Genre: Crime, Drama, Mystery
Cast: Danica Curcic, Mikkel Boe Følsgaard, Iben Dorner, Esben Dalgaard, David Dencik, Lars Ranthe
Runtime: 50 min

Out of Denmark comes this crime mystery series which we suspect may become a cult hit. The series follows a young woman who is found dead in a playground with the murderers calling card seemingly being a small man-made of chestnuts.

Early reviews peg the series at a 8.5 on IMDb.
