Here are a further 10 movies not to miss on Netflix.
Movies come and go and they are easy to miss, especially with the accessibility for at home viewing.
This list is a mix of favourites; some romance, a lot of drama, a little bit of humour and a tinge of sadness. You may have seen some or all of them and many of them I have watched several times. Not all are blockbusters but that is their charm.
Watching movies are for me one of the greatest pleasures in life along with reading.
Do you have some lesser known but worth-a-watch movie you would like to add? xv
10 Movies Not To Miss On Netflix
I Am Love
‘At a dinner during which her husband, Tancredi (Pippo Delbono), learns that he and his son Edoardo Recchi Jr. (Flavio Parenti) are about to assume control of the Edoardo Recchi Sr.’s (Gabriele Ferzetti) lucrative business, Emma (Tilda Swinton) meets a chef named Antonio (Edoardo Gabbriellini).’
Tilda Swinton – Bellissima. Don’t miss this one.
‘An American romantic comedy, Beginners is told through a series of flashbacks telling the story of Oliver and his complicated and difficult relationship with his father. The film is gorgeously heartbreaking, demonstrating how hurtful we are to those we love, while showing the ties of mutual need that bind people.’
Anything with with Christopher Plummer.
‘In 1952, Irish teenager Philomena (Judi Dench) became pregnant out of wedlock and was sent to a convent. When her baby, Anthony, was a toddler, the nuns took Philomena’s child away from her and put him up for adoption in the United States. When former BBC correspondent Martin Sixsmith (Steve Coogan) learns of the story, he becomes her ally.’
Judi Dench and Steve Coogan are magical together.
‘After a controlling owner (Dustin Hoffman) pushes him too far, chef Carl Casper (Jon Favreau) quits his position at a prestigious Los Angeles restaurant. As he tries to figure out what his next step should be, he finds himself in Miami. Carl joins forces with his ex-wife (Sofía Vergara), best friend (John Leguizamo) and son (Emjay Anthony) to launch a food-truck business, and the venture provides a chance to reignite his passion for cooking.’
Light, frothy and feel good all the way.
‘After leaving the South as a young man and finding employment at an elite hotel in Washington, D.C., Cecil Gaines (Forest Whitaker) gets the opportunity of a lifetime when he is hired as a butler at the White House. Over the course of three decades, Cecil has a front-row seat to history and the inner workings of the Oval Office. However, his commitment to his “First Family” leads to tension at home, alienating his wife (Oprah Winfrey) and causing conflict with his anti-establishment son.’
Forest Whitaker is remarkable as Cecil; nearly as good as his performance in The Last King of Scotland.
