Let’s now take a look at a couple of the highlights of what’s new for today:

Midnight Special (2016)

Genre: Drama, Mystery, Sci-Fi, Thriller
Director: Jeff Nichols
Cast: Michael Shannon, Joel Edgerton, Kirsten Dunst, Adam Driver
Writer: Jeff Nichols
Runtime: 112 min
Awards: 3 wins & 14 nominations.

One of Adam Driver’s breakout performances came from this Warner Brothers picture release four years ago. It’s a sci-fi movie that sees a father and a son on the run from two separate organizations, the US government, and a cult. The son it turns out exhibits superpowers which makes him a threat.

Critic reviews were extremely positive for the movie with it having a 76 Metacritic score as of the time of publishing. The Verge’s review was perhaps one of the most flattering describing it as a “film moves effortlessly, with plenty of tense thrills and surprise reveals.”

Waiting for Superman (2010)

Genre: Documentary
Director: Davis Guggenheim
Cast: Charles Adams, Jonathan Alter, Robert Balfanz, Harriet Ball
Writer: Davis Guggenheim, Billy Kimball
Runtime: 111 min
Awards: 16 wins & 28 nominations.

This documentary is perhaps one of the highest-rated licensed documentaries currently on Netflix with Davis Guggenheim who worked on An Inconvenient Truth and He Named Me Malala writing and directing.

Waiting for Superman is a deep-dive look at the state of the education system in the United States of America.
