New Releases on Netflix UK (27th January 2017)

Welcome back to another week of What’s New on Netflix UK; it’s been fairly quiet in comparison to recent weeks but we still have a good selection of additions to tell you about.

First up this week we have “Birdman or (The Unexpected Virtue of Ignorance)” starring Michael Keaton. Riggan Thomson has spent over 20 years as the comic book superhero ‘Birdman’ in TV series and subsequent movies. Now he’s past middle-age, he wants to redefine himself as a serious play-write, actor and director on Broadway. But his past alter-ego refuses to step back and ends up constantly reminding him of his flaws. The film went on to win 4 Oscars.

“The Skeleton Twins” is an independent comedy/drama from 2014. When estranged twins Maggie and Milo both have near-death experiences on the same day they decide to try and rebuild their lives, and their relationship, after not seeing each other for 10 years.

“Riverdale” is a new series arriving weekly on Netflix. Based on the famous Archie comics this series shows us that the peaceful Riverdale is just a façade. Archie and his friends quickly become entangled in a weird, dark mystery. New episodes are added every Friday.

And finally for those who like documentaries is a new series “Shadow of Truth”. This mini-series goes in-depth into the murder of a 13 year old Israeli girl in 2006 and the subsequent arrest of a Ukranian immigrant.
