Netflix balance at any number of films and series in its catalog each week, without note or the platform to do the announcement formally. Each week-end, Wide-Screen will be up on few of the titles added by Netflix in its catalogue, movies and series, combined, original or not, in a non-exhaustive list.
So, what are the movies and series not to be missed this weekend on the streaming platform ?
It’s about what ? Pushed by a professor of music demanding, the young drummer Andrew is determined to succeed in jazz, even to lose its identity.
Why it is necessary to look ? The background of the characters gradually disappears behind the importance of performance. The correctness of the work of Miles Teller, who plays almost all of the songs, and J. K. Simmons, Oscar best actor in a supporting role, is really immersive. Their relationship, between a student steeped in an admiration almost subsidiary and a professor despotic, which does not loose anything, ever, is more toxic. Only a final cathartic in a final piece managed to abolish it.
The film has received numerous awards. In addition to the performance from J. K Simmons, the sound and the editing have also been oscarisés. A first burst of statuettes, which announced almost the coronation of Damien Chazelle two years later with the The Land.
Our criticism is to discover here.

A WONDERFUL HISTORY OF TIME
It’s about what ? While his reputation has affierme in the world of physics, Stephen Hawking is increasingly debilitated by lou gehrig’s disease and dependent of his wife, Jane.
Why it is necessary to look at ? If the film covers the surface of the challenges that men embarking on their quest of scientific truth, it is also an ode to the love and courage because he takes the side of Stephen Hawking and his wife Jane. Locked in a sick body, the daily life is a struggle. In spite of its storyline sometimes a bit simplistic, the film is a true testimony of the struggle of the scientist in the company to revolutionize the world of medicine and science.
A wonderful history of time has had an impressive record. Named in five categories at the Oscars, Eddie Redmayne has won best actor at the nose and the beard of Michael Keaton in Birdman.

It’s about what ? A maths teacher slouch receives as if by magic the gift of travel through films legendary to meet and save the woman of his dreams.
Why it is necessary to look ? Cinéman is a date in the history of the 7th Art. Shot brightly, almost completely rewritten, and then stepped in during post-production, the film is a disaster luxurious. Story delusional, failure full, the film is a curiosity that is quite unique, fascinating and inspiring. The evidence that Yann Moix is not about that bullshit, he also shoots. A nanar unmistakable.
“You take a bit of a Cinéman ? No, but it is on Netflix so good…”
It’s about what ? A young orphan raised by animals in the heart of the jungle take in hand his destiny by facing a dangerous enemy… and their own human nature.
Why it is necessary to look at ? In gestation for years, it is finally time to discover the Mowgli Andy Serkis. Much closer to the original work of Rudyard Kipling that the version of Disney, the film made the choice to leave aside the realism and good feelings, to propose a reinterpretation of the violent, to the amazing style and said. A bias that may surprise, but ensures the film an aesthetic impact and a severity the more remarkable.

It’s about what ? When Elsa clings to her ex, her friends decide to hire an escort to help him turn the page… a good plan that works a little too well.
Why it is necessary to look at ? On the paper Plan Heart, created by Noémie Saglio, director of Bitch, the Princess of hearts, with Zita Hanrot, Sabrina Ouazani and Josephine Drai, has all ofa mix between the series Girls by Lena Dunham and Sex and the city, or the films Bridget Jones Diary and Pretty woman in reverse.
On paper, it is therefore enough to spend a funny moment and quite moving. After the trailer, we are frankly not convinced but who knows ? With only eight 30-minute episodes, Plan Heart, second French series original Netflix, could succeed in its coup. Remains to be seen whether it will remain a hit for a night or a heartbeat.
