Happy Friday and welcome to your third daily recap of what’s new on Netflix where Netflix has added 14 new releases today. We’ll be taking you through the top picks as well as looking at what’s trending in Netflix’s top 10s for the day.

Today is your last chance to watch 2018’s Radium Girls on Netflix before it departs. We’d also recommend watching Annabelle: Creation a watch if you intend to over the weekend, given it’s leaving Wednesday. We’ve also just updated our removals for August 2022, which now includes nearly 100 titles departing.

One title notably missing from this list today is Uncharted. The new Sony movie starring Tom Holland was supposed to arrive today but we’ve learned it’s been pushed back to August.

Persuasion – Picture: Netflix

Dakota Johnson headlines this new romantic adaptation of the Jane Austen novel of the same name.

As you may have read, this movie is already quite controversial with critics to say the least. In fact, it’s one of the weaker reviewed movies of the year. Audience scores have been fluttering in all morning and they do seem a little kinder than critics, however.

Vox’s review is perhaps the most damning, saying, “Persuasion is all agony.” Ouch.

Many of the reviews complain about how different the story is to Austen’s original novel; while some didn’t mind, others certainly did.

Alba (Season 1)

Genre: Drama
Cast: Elena Rivera, Eric Masip, Álvaro Rico
Writer: Carlos Martín, Ignasi Rubio
Runtime: 50 min

Netflix has acquired another series from Atresplayer Premium to stream outside of Spain today. It’s called Alba and is an adaptation of a Turkish series.

The story revolves around a student in Madrid who is in a relationship with a man called Bruno and generally getting on well in life. However, her life is turned upside down after being the victim of a rape where the perpetrators are her boyfriend’s close friends.

It received good reviews in Spain where it aired last year and is now available on Netflix.
