Here Is What’s New on Netflix for June 2015

The Magdalene Sisters (2002)


A period drama that tells the story of four women who are incarcerated in a Magdalene Asylum in Ireland during the 1960’s. Magdalene Asylums detained women (typically against their will, and under harsh conditions) abandoned by their families who were deemed too sexually promiscuous or were sex workers. The Magdalene Sisters is rated 90% fresh on RottenTomatoes.com. This one should be made available at some point this month, but the date is currently unclear.

Two Days, One Night (2014)


A Belgian-French-Italian film about a mother who, following a nervous breakdown, has to convince her co-workers to turn down their bonuses they took to cover her shifts so she can remain employed. A thoughtful, compassionate film, it was loved by critics and holds a 97% fresh rating on RottenTomatoes.com.

A well-received spy thriller starring Philip Seymour Hoffman, Rachel McAdams, and Robin Wright. 88% fresh on RottenTomatoes.com.
