7 Netflix shows and films


The Ripper

Fresh on the streaming platform this week is The Ripper, a gripping documentary that delves deep into the 1970s police investigation of the devastating crimes committed by Peter Sutcliffe, otherwise known as the Yorkshire Ripper.

The true-crime series "re-examines the crimes the crimes within the context of England in the late 1970s: a time of radical change, de-industrialization, poverty, masculinity, and misogyny, all of which contributed to the Ripper evading capture for so long". 

Tiny Pretty Things

Another Netflix newbie is Tiny Pretty Things. Dubbed Black Swan meets Gossip Girl, the new ten-part drama series is set in the cutthroat world of ballet and follows young ballerina Neveah, who gets the chance to attend a prestigious ballet school after a classmate mysterious dies.

On her arrival, however, she finds more than just barres and pointe shoes, as secrets and lies between her fellow classmates unfold.


With Hollywood heavyweights fronting this action film, including Jessica Chastain and John Malkovich, it is no wonder it's been at the top of Netflix trending for a while now. The 2020 film, which was released earlier this year, follows a professional assassin who tries to reunite with her family – but after a hit job goes awry, she finds herself in the center of a target.

The Prom

Glitter, singing, and Meryl Streep. It doesn't get much better than that, does it? Ryan Murphy's latest addition to the world of showbiz has got plenty of people talking after it landed earlier this month. The series, which is based on the hit musical of the same name, follows Dee Dee Allen and Barry Glickman stage stars with a new show that has surprisingly flopped.

Room 2806: The Accusation

Another true-crime show that has been trending on the streaming platform time and time again Room 2806: The Accusation. The shocking new docu-series explores the 2011 sexual assault case involving French politician Dominique Strauss-Kahn and hotel maid Nafissatou Diallo. The four episodes hear from the accuser as well as investigators as they seek to uncover the truth.

Selena: The Series

This drama series has taken viewers on a trip down memory lane with its depiction of Selena the Tejano singer that shot to the height of superstardom in the 1990s, became compared to the likes of Madonna, and had record-breaking hits and awards.

The ten episodes show the late singer's rise to fame and the difficulties she faced along the way. Fans have been loving the series so here's hoping there will be a series two.


Mank arrived on Netflix earlier this month and proved instantly popular. The film, starring Gary Oldman, Amanda Seyfried, and Lily Collins, tells the story of screenwriter Herman J. Mankiewicz, perhaps best known for his era-defining screenplay, Citizen Kane. If you're a fan of 1930s Hollywood and all the tension, glamour, and scandal it brings this one for you.
