What’s on Netflix This August| Life

documentaries on netflix It has been a while sine I have shared my love for Netflix so I thought it was time for me to share with you some of the new shows on the site which have peaked my interest.



I have heard a lot about this show. I am generally sceptical about the revenge led dramas as it is not usually something I can relate too but I love Debby Ryan as an actress and as a person. The production value from the trailer looks insane and shows there is more to the show than meets the eye.

Bad Moms 

Kirsten Bell and Mila Kunis in a film together, what more could you want? I missed the film, the first around so I gave a bit of a squeal when I found it is coming to Netflix at the end of the month. Bad Moms is about a group of women who are recently new to motherhood and they are met by soccer moms who appear to have the whole motherhood thing down. They decide they want to do things on their own terms and go against the soccer mom perception of being a mom.

Home Again

For someone who loves films, I really haven’t watched some key ones, including Home Again. Reese Witherspoon is a phenomenal actress and she is incredibly wise when it comes to choosing scripts. Home Again is about a single mother who rents her home to three filmmakers. She is trying to move on in her life but her husband reappears throwing a bit of a spanner in the works. I am excited to see how Reese portrays the female protagonist as she usually takes a risk in how she portrays them staying away from the standard cliched roles of women – making them more dimensional and multi faceted.

The Duff 

I am actually going to watch this tonight. The Duff is about a girl played by Mae Whitman who find out she is the ugly fat friend in her clique and wants to change this with the help of one of her friends who happens to be a jock. Mae is a great actress so I am excited to see this take on a teenage coming of age story. It also has Bella Thorne who I am currently watching in Famous in Love and I am excited to see her acting in something else.

Like Father 

Reconnecting with a parent when you are an adult can be tough. You do not have those rose tinted glasses that you have about your parents when you are a child. Likewise, a parent has to comes to terms with the fact their child has their own life and has seen a lot of the world already. Like Father sees Kirsten Bell being left at the alter which results in her taking her father Kelsey Grammar on her honeymoon cruise. Thing is she hasn’t seen him in over a decade. I already know this is going to have me in emotional knots.

I could honestly go on and on because there are a lot of new additions to Netflix I need to find the time to watch.

Let me know if you have watched any of the above or what you are looking forward to watching on Netflix this month.
