What’s leaving Netflix UK in May / June 2017?
VOD News | On 16, May 2017
Another month begins to draw to a close and, just as June looms on the horizon, so to does the departure of some real gems on Netflix. Whether you’re a Facebook addict, a kung fu enthusiast, a Barbara Streisand admirer or someone who just really likes Calvin & Hobbes, this is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Kung Fu Hustle – 17th May
Stephen Chow’s fast-paced action comedy sees a wannabe gangster aspiring to join a notorious gang in 1940s Shanghai.
Dear Mr. Watterson – 17th May
Is there anyone who hasn’t heard of Calvin & Hobbes? This charming documentary by Joel Allen Schroeder aims to tell the story of the comic strip and its creator, Bill Watterson, from the perspective of its cultural impact.
Funny Girl – 17th May
William Wyler’s 1968 drama stars Barbara Streisand as comedienne Fannie Brice, from her early days in the Jewish slums of the Lower East Side to her peak with Ziegfeld Follies.
Catfish – 19th May
This mind-bending film is one of the great modern documentaries that shows just how much you can do with a non-fiction format. We follow photographer Nev as he makes (ahem) special friends with someone on Facebook. Is all as it seems? His journey to meet her in real life is a surprising, gripping and prescient drama that plays out like a B-side to The Social Network. Essential viewing for the Facebook generation.
Love Is Strange – 21st May
Alfred Molina and John Lithgow are sublime in Ira Sachs’ film about a gay couple who stay together despite losing their home. A beautiful tribute to the simple joy of commitment.
