I don’t blame you if your thoughts while reading this headline were Excuse me, October?! Since the beginning of the coronavirus pandemic six months ago, time has taken on a life of its own, meaning somehow we are now stepping into autumn. You might be clinging onto your dreams of an Indian summer but the incoming wet weather is sadly an indication of the amount of time we’ll be spending indoors from now on.
Thankfully, there are a few positives to spending your evenings huddled in a blanket on the sofa. Number one being that Netflix has a boatload of content heading your way this month. After September’s major successes like crime-fighting mystery movie Enola Holmes and creepy wartime thriller The Devil All The Time, the platform is back with even more big-hitters. In particular, Netflix has produced a plethora of pertinent documentaries covering a world of topics, from disability access to the music industry, as well as a giant feature film on the state of the natural world as we know it.
If documentaries aren’t your thing, there are still plenty of options to choose from, including two major movies. Fans of films with all-star casts will be happy to know that Netflix is bringing Lily James, Maya Rudolph, Eddie Redmayne, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and more to our screens this October in a variety of comedies, thrillers and real-life dramas. The platform will also be airing its very own pandemic-set series, just in case you needed a reminder about the current climate.
