As usual... These aren't necessarily recommendations. Consider the list more of an FYI - films we've talked about on this site, at one time or another, that are now streaming on Netflix, that you might want to check out for yourselves.
Without further ado, here's this week's list of 5:
1. Previously titled Small of Her Back, the psychological thriller/drama Apartment 4E starring Nicole Beharie and Christopher Domig, is based on an off-Broadway play by writer/director Russell Sharman.
Apartment 4E centers on Piper, a secluded, bipolar young woman, who begins an online relationship with a woman named Molly. One night Molly gets a knock on a door from John, who claims to be Molly's brother and who wants to help prevent her from doing what she has been threatening to do.
Here's the new synopsis:
Piper (Nicole Beharie, The Last Fall, 42) is a beautiful, intelligent young woman with everything to live for…but she’s trapped in a dark world of her own making. Deeply troubled, desperate and clutching a handgun, Piper has not left her apartment in a long time, and when there’s a knock on the door, she will face a choice that will make the difference between life and death. This stranger may have the answers to the mystery at the center of Piper’s world, or he may have his own reasons for tracking her down. The truth lies up the stairs and down the hall in APARTMENT 4E.
The film is available for on Amazon on DVD and also on iTunes as both a rental and a purchase.
But if you have a Netflix account, you can watch it there, right now as well.
Vanessa reviewed the film when it premiered at the UrbanWorld Film Festival last year, and highly recommended it. If you haven't read it, you can do so HERE.
