Netflix USA: What's New in June 2017

Winter is upon us here in Australia and cosy nights tucked up on the couch begin to seem like the ideal way to spend a chilly evening. Of course, our friends across the pond at Netflix US are gearing up for their swimsuit season. Thankfully, they’ve still delivered on a bunch of new streaming content to see us through our cold snap. Let’s check out some highlights.

Those looking to sink their teeth into a new series should consider Gypsy Season 1. The incredible quality of television series in recent years has seen more and more seasoned film stars move across to the small screen format, and on this occasion, it’s Naomi Watts (St. Vincent) making the transition. Here Watts plays Jean Holloway, a therapist whose interest in the lives of her patients becomes problematic. Touted as a drama with thriller elements, scaredy-cats are advised to watch with a pillow to hide behind.

June 1 sees the season return of Arrow. Now in its fifth season, Arrow is the story of Oliver Queen, billionaire playboy turned hooded vigilante. Canadian actor Stephen Amell stars as Arrow. Also on offer this June is a freshly squeezed dose of Orange is the New Black. Returning for Season 5 is this popular series whose dark comedy takes place in a women’s prison. The series was created by Jenji Kohan who was also responsible for the cult fave, Weeds. And for something brand spanking new and a little different, what about GLOW, about a bunch of female wrestlers in Los Angeles? Season 1 kicks of June 23.

For those who like their movies gilded by Oscar, check out My Left Foot. The film won actor Daniel Day-Lewis (There Will Be Blood) the Best Actor award in 1990. Playing Christy Brown, a man whose cerebral palsy is no match for his indomitable will, Day-Lewis’ performance is extraordinary. Also critically acclaimed is Full Metal Jacket, Stanley Kubrick’s unflinching portrayal of war and its dehumanising effects.

Causing some controversy at Cannes, but not because of anything good or bad in particularly with the film, the charming and family friendly Netflix production Okja is definitely worth checking out, if not for the fact that it stars the excellent Tilda Swinton, The Walking Dead's Steven Yeun and it comes from the writer and director of Snowpiercer.

Documentary buffs would do well to catch Nobody Speak: Hulk Hogan, Gawker and Trial of a Free Press. When Gawker, a celebrity and media industry gossip blog, posted a sex tape of Hulk Hogan, the Wrestlemania superstar launched a high-stakes legal battle in which the rights of an individual’s privacy were weighed up against the First Amendment. Brian Knappenberger’s documentary examines the lawsuit that ultimately bankrupted Gawker and explores the further reaching consequences of how money and power are damaging society’s access to a free media. Also streaming, Saving Banksy, the 2017 documentary about the infamous and enigmatic graffiti artist, Banksy.

And for the little ones, two of the biggest animated kids’ films of 2016 begin streaming this month, Disney’s Moana and Trolls.

Read on for all this month’s new additions and the titles that will be leaving.
