Another month, another deluge of wonderful Netflix content to binge! Whatever the weather may bring, entertain yourself with one of these very many new films coming to Netflix UK this August. 1. Touch of Evil (1958) – 1st August Orson Welles’ 1958 American film noir classic is now regarded as one of his best films, and in 1993 was selected for preservation in the US National Film Registry by the Library of Congress for being ‘culturally, historically or aesthetically significant’. A saga of corruption and intrigue, the film begins when a car bomb explodes by the US-Mexican border. As both a Mexican and an American agent investigate, one of the officers soon begins to suspect that the other is corrupt, and his investigation risks putting his life in danger. 2. Like Father (2018)– 3rd August Released straight to Netflix, this film stars Kristen Bell as workaholic executive who is left at the altar. Instead of her would-be husband, she invites her long-estranged father to her honeymoon, played by Frasier’s Kelsey Grammer. Though it obviously stars some comedy geniuses, Netflix classes this film as ‘emotional’ and ‘heartfelt’, so prepare for a bit of a rollercoaster with this one. 3. Pride and Prejudice (2005) – 4th August Based on the renowned Jane Austen novel but changed enough to make it new, this romantic drama stars Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfadyen as Elizabeth Bennett and Mr Darcy, played with understated chemistry. A classic and timeless tale of morality, love and marriage, few were surprised when Pride and Prejudice raked in four Academy Award nominations that year. 4. Loving Vincent (2017)– 5th August
