What’s leaving Netflix UK in August / September 2021?
James R | On 17, Aug 2021
While people still navigate their way through the coronavirus pandemic, Netflix UK’s sizeable library of movies and TV shows remains a handy resource for keeping entertained indoors.
But before you start bingeing through its new originals, don’t miss out on catching up with some other gems before their rights expire and they head to another service, or just disappear into the digital ether.
This is your last chance to stream the following on Netflix UK:
Horrible Histories – 24th August
Educational TV may not always sound like the most entertaining thing. But CBBC’s historical series, based on the popular book franchise, combines hyperactive puns and visual gags with a whole heap of facts. Witty, clever – and, most of all, very funny.
Us (2019) – 27th August
Jordan Peele’s ambitious follow-up to Get Out is a creepy invasion thriller with a killer turn from Lupita Nyong’o.
One Day – 31st August
Anne Hathaway and Jim Sturgess are superb in Lone Scherfig’s adaptation of David Nicholls’ romantic novel.
Room (2015) – 31st August
As harrowing as it is heartwarming, Room is a remarkable tale of parental love and childlike wonder.
Toast of London – 31st August
Zoolander – 31st August
Ben Stiller’s sharply written comedy about a male model is really, really, ridiculously funny.
A Beautiful Mind – 31st August
Russell Crowe is on award-winning form as troubled mathematician John Nash, who agrees to take on secret work for the government helping to crack codes.
The Art of Self-Defense – 3rd September
Jesse Eisenberg stars in this underseen comedy about a meek man who, tired of being bullied, enrolls in the karate class of an enigmatic instructor who introduces him to a sinister, hypermasculine subculture.
Straight Outta Compton – 10th September
The solid elements just about the outweigh the stodgy ones in this entertaining N.W.A. biopic.
The Sisters Brothers – 11th September
Get on these siblings’ wavelength and you’ll be rewarded with an enjoyably unusual Western.
Bumblebee (2018) – 12th September
Hailee Steinfield is superb in this charmingy low-key character drama that happens to feature giant robots.
Donnie Brasco – 12th September
Johnny Deppstars in this gangster drama, which sees his undercover agent taken under the wing of a low-level mobster (an equally brilliant Al Pacino).
A Cure for Wellness – 18th September
Gore Verbinski’s slippery horror is enjoyably silly and genuinely creepy.
Crazy Rich Asians – 21st September
Utter joy from start to finish, Crazy Rich Asians is the film the world needs right now.
