Almost Love (2019)

Genre: Comedy, Drama, Romance
Director: Mike Doyle
Cast: Scott Evans, Augustus Prew, Michelle Buteau, Colin Donnell
Writer: Mike Doyle
Runtime: 94 min

We’ll start today’s listing by starting with Almost Love which was originally sold as Sell By when it released last year.

Reviews seem to be mixed from both critics and the relatively few that have reviewed it on IMDb thus far.

It’s an ensemble comedy that looks at the role of smartphones in modern relationships.

Connected: The Hidden Science of Everything (Season 1)

Genre: Documentary
Cast: Latif Nasser

If you’re looking for a Mythbusters-esque experience on Netflix, Connected is an excellent new six-part docu-series that just landed today.

It follows Latif Nasser who is a widely respected science journalist who looks into fascinating subjects and the science behind them including Nukes, Clouds, Dust and perhaps the most interesting, Poop.

Pick of the Litter (2018)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Don Hardy, Dana Nachman
Cast: Diane Meer, Terry Blosser, Janet Gearheart, Sharon Kret
Writer: Dana Nachman
Runtime: 80 min

Our most anticipated documentary of the month has been Pick of the Litter, a documentary that looks into the raising of a litter of puppies for the purpose of helping them become guide dogs.

It’ll melt your heart from start to finish and scored well with critics and audiences globally.

Interestingly, Disney+ carries a TV series of the same name based on exactly the same subject matter.
