Not feeling your Netflix recommended list?

That’s ok, we’ve already got your streaming schedule sorted for the week ahead.

There’s gritty American drama from mother and daughter team Andie MacDowell and Margaret Qualley, as well as Broadway dramatics in the form of Diana: The Musical.

If it’s escapism you’re after, you’ll love Mexican comedy Acapulco, or if you’re feeling really adventurous, head all the way to outer space with NASA documentary Among The Stars.

Real-life mother and daughter Andie MacDowell and Margaret Qualley play a mother and daughter in this hard-hitting drama but we’re a long way from Hollywood here.

Qualley is single mum Alex, a young woman struggling to survive as she tries to escape an abusive relationship and a background that’s been overshadowed by her mother’s mental health issues.

The result is a convincingly gritty portrait of a life hovering on the poverty line, a country that borders Nomadland.

Available now.

Diana: The Musical

My Celebrity Life –
The Royal story gets a musical retelling

If you thought The Crown was fine but that it would have been better with a few more Disney-style show tunes to give it a bit of showbiz oomph then this will be right up your regal alley.

Jeanna de Waal belts out the numbers as the ill-fated Diana, Princess of Wales, in a musical, destined to open on Broadway next month, which follows the fortunes of the starry-eyed young Diana as she becomes a global paparazzi favourite.

Acapulco

My Celebrity Life –
Enjoy this summer 80s tale (Picture: Cate Cameron / Disney)

Need a little fun escapism? Then this perky Mexican cocktail should do the trick. It’s the story of ambitious young Maximo, a lad from the backstreets of Acapulco, who lands a job at the chi-chi Las Colinas resort and soon gets to learn exactly what is expected from a cabana boy: Las Colinas has a very exacting clientele.

It’s set in the 1980s, which explains the short red shorts and the endless curls of curly hair.

It’s a frothy comedy told in flashback in English and Spanish, with Eugenio Derbez and Enrique Arrizon as the older and younger Maximo. There’s also a chance to gauge how well Glee hunk Chord Overstreet is maturing.

Available Friday.
