September continues to be the month that keeps on giving. A lot of great titles arrived this week on Netflix UK. We take a look at a few of the highlights that landed this week.

Let’s start with movies. In the ‘oldie but you should always watch’ department we have The Breakfast Club. In this John Hughes classic, a group of teens find themselves together in a Saturday detention that changes their entire perspective on teenage life.

Two other must-see classics are Being John Malkovich and Schindler’s List. Both are cerebral watches that deserve a spot in your queue.

Another movie very worthy of your time is The Land of Steady Habits. Adapted from the book of the same name by Ted Thompson, Ben Mendelsohn (Bloodline) stars as a suburban financier suffering from terminal malaise. He leaves his job and his family to find a better life without much success. He’s disliked by most people he knows, makes terrible choices, and has trouble communicating with his son. Edie Falco puts forth her usual first-rate performance as his ex-wife who is moving on with her life much to his dismay. This certainly isn’t an uplifting film, but it’s a great character driven study with superb performances from all involved. It’s a very compelling watch.

In the series department, there are several binge-worthy additions. First up is American Horror Story Season 7. The seventh installment of Ryan Murphy’s anthology series, this season has a political bent. There are politicians and meltdowns and clowns. Oh, my.

We also get a new season of BoJack Horseman. Last season was quite serious, but we get a bit of lightening up with BoJack landing a starring role in a new series. Perhaps this is the season the characters find a happier place.

We also get a new season of American Vandal. Always disgusting but too good to turn away from, this season sees a new school and a new mystery. Let’s just say it involves something brown. Like last season, the show seems set on a juvenile concept, but ends up being a great true crime show.
