The third week of June will see a few films and series leaving Netflix as usual. But the load is lesser this week.
This is your last chance to watch the critically acclaimed Philomena (2013) on Netflix. It is a film based on a true story, capturing the remarkable bond between an investigative journalist and a woman searching for her long-lost son. The film features Judi Dench and Steve Coogan.
The screenplay of Philomena, penned by Steve Coogan and Jeff Pope, was honoured with the Best Screenplay accolade at the 70th Venice International Film Festival. The performances and compelling story led to four Oscar nominations at the 86th Academy Awards, including ‘Best Picture’, ‘Best Adapted Screenplay’, ‘Best Actress’ (Judi Dench), and ‘Best Original Score’.
Also leaving on June 21st, is Mohamed Hussein (2019), an Egyptian film described as “A luxury hotel chauffeur’s life is turned upside down when he unexpectedly becomes the focus of a renowned painter’s final art project.”
Additionally, Netflix Originals Us and Them (2018) and The Wolf’s Call (2019) will be removed from the platform as well.
On June 22nd, the departure continues with the drama series Shooter (seasons one to three), starring Ryan Rhillipe, the mesmerising illusionist special Derren Brown: Miracle (2018), where Brown debunks the concept of “faith healing”, and the gripping sci-fi The Mist (2007).
Lastly, on June 24th, make sure to catch Backtrace (2018), the terribly panned Sylvester Stallone film about a thief with amnesia, especially if you enjoy ‘so bad it’s good’ popcorn flicks.
