Also this week there are enough new offers to keep you from getting bored. In addition, Apple TV + in particular plays a major trump card this week. The not very well known / loved streaming app is launching a documentary about world star Billie Eilish, a new title that could attract quite a few new viewers.
A new streaming service was launched early this week: Star, included with Disney +. About fifty series and about two hundred films were immediately added to the offer. We have prepared a guide with our own recommendations for both the series and the films.
As the only new series title this week we have Ginny & Georgia on Netflix on sale. A series about a mother and her daughter who make it no secret that they are aiming for the audience of Gilmore Girls.
The story is pretty simple: Georgia Miller is the mother who, after her husband’s death, decides to make a fresh start in a new town with her two children. Georgia is a young, sexy, outgoing mother. Ginny is her introverted teenage daughter. The result is a pleasant teen series that looks good.
The Silencing is a small independent film that the Flemish director Robin Pront shot in Canada. To everyone’s surprise – including Pront’s himself – the film became a huge hit on just about every Video On Demand platform in the United States. From now on the film is also through Streamz + to see.
The film revolves around a hunter who lives a secluded life in nature. He and local sheriff Alice become involved in a deadly game of cat and mouse when they are on the trail of a vicious killer.
How To Build A Girl, can also be found on Streamz +, is the film adaptation of Caitlin Moran’s novel of the same name. It tells the story of a funny and smart girl who decides to go on a quest to discover her sexuality and reinvent herself by adopting an alter ego called ‘Dolly Wilde’.
New on Netflix is the Spanish romcom Loco Por Ella with a very special starting point: Adri falls madly in love with Carla and has herself admitted to the psychiatric hospital where Carla is staying. He discovers that getting out again is not as easy as he thought.
And in the Italian romantic film Sulla Stessa Onda, also on Netflix, it’s about seventeen-year-old Lorenzo, an instructor in a sailing center. He gets it for Sara. When the course ends, they meet again, but Sara inexplicably becomes distant.
Apple TV + hopes to attract many viewers to their platform with the documentary Billie Eilish: The World’s A Little Blurry. And honestly, it’s worth it too. The more than two-hour film does what many other similar documentaries promise: offer a look behind the scenes.
We see Billie Eilish as a teenager, within her family, as she becomes a global superstar at a young age. It offers an intimate look at this teen’s special journey as she tries to hold her own on stage and at home. During her tours she is writing and recording the debut album ‘When we all fall asleep, where do we go’, in her brother’s bedroom.
Netflix launches a documentary about an idol from another generation: Pelé. The Brazilian football legend was the only player to win three World Cup titles. The documentary looks back at an extraordinary period in which he grew from a young superstar to a national hero, amid a radical and turbulent era in Brazilian history.
The six-part documentary series Age Of Samurai: Battle For Japan also has our interest: reenactments and expert commentary bring to life the tumultuous history and power struggles of belligerent 16th-century feudal Japan.
Finally, we also want Made You Look: A True Story About Fake Art on Netflix. This documentary film revolves around Pei-Shen Qian, a math teacher with painting ambitions who finds himself a master forger. It is something different, but no less enjoyable.
