New Releases on Netflix UK (7th August)

Published on EST


It’s the start of a new month so we have a lot to get through this week with new movies, documentaries and TV series. First up we have “The Best of Me”, a romantic drama that sees two high-school sweethearts AManda and Dawson reunited at a funeral of a mutual friend. While they still have feelings for each other Amanda struggles with being pushed away by Dawson 20 years earlier. Is it true that you never forget your first love?

As the number of documentaries steadily grows on Netflix UK we have decided to list these separately below. Here are a few highlights:

  • “Spellbound” – follow obsessive parents and intelligent children through the world of Spelling Bees (spelling competitions)
  • “Josef Fritzl: Story of a Monster” – interviews and rare footage showing the horror that Fritzl put his own children through while he kept them locked up for years
  • “Dumbstruck” – meet five performers showing that the art of ventriloquism isn’t dead
  • “The Secret Life of Birds” – a brilliant BBC documentary mini-series about the habits and lives of birds

And, finally, fans of My Little Pony may be pleased to see so much new content featuring these lovable ponies – six films and one series covering 2004 to 2013:
