The complete soundtrack to 'A Family Affair'

A romantic comedy starring Nicole Kidman and Zac Efron was never going to be anything except an instant smash hit on Netflix, and in that regard, A Family Affair has comfortably lived up to expectations.

Helmed by genre veteran Richard LaGravenese – who previously directed P.S. I Love You and scripted Clint Eastwood’s The Bridges of Madison County – the movie debuted as the most-watched feature on the streaming service following its June 28th premiere after notching almost 27million views.

Joey King rounds out the central trio as the personal assistant to Efron’s self-obsessed Hollywood star, Chris Cole, ultimately quitting her job in frustration. However, after the actor turns up at her home to offer her a new and improved position, he ends up sleeping with her mother.

With Efron and Kidman’s tryst leaving King’s Zara caught in the middle, it places the aspiring industry professional in the uncomfortable position of having the person who plays her bills become romantically entangled with her old dear.

The setup is the stuff of a thousand other rom-coms before it, and that’s been reflected in the rather tepid response to A Family Affair on a critical level. However, because big stars always mean big viewing figures on Netflix, the film has shrugged off that sentiment to become appointment viewing for subscribers around the world.

The movie is soundtracked by an eclectic array of songs both current and classic, which will have no doubt left many viewers eager to craft a Family Affair-inspired playlist of their very own to keep the party going long after the credits come up.

From Cher and Miley Cyrus to Olivia Dean and Wham! via Sabrina Carpenter and even a festive favourite thrown in for good measure, the track list for A Family Affair runs the gamut of genres that makes for suitably easy listening.
