Your Netflix must-see list?as we begin a new month.


CASTING JONBENET

It’s over 20 years since the unsolved death of six-year-old American beauty queen JonBenet Ramsey and it remains the world’s most sensational child murder case. Casting JonBenet was filmed over 15 months in the Ramsey’s hometown. You’ll see the responses and reflections of the community and the retelling of the story, and take a look at the possible suspects, determine why some suspects definitely didn’t do it, all interwoven with testimony from those involved with the case.

GIRLBOSS

This Netflix original comedy series is inspired by the 2014 best-selling autobiography?of Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso, who went from selling vintage clothes on eBay to building a multi-million dollar fashion empire while still in her 20s. Created by Kay Cannon (Pitch Perfect and 30 Rock) and executive produced by Charlize Theron, Laverne McKinnon, Beth Kono, Christian Ditter and Sophia Amoruso herself.

DEAR WHITE PEOPLE

Based on the 2014 movie, this Netflix original series caused outrage and was claimed as being racist towards white people in its endeavour to promote black issues. Our advice would be to watch the movie and series before jumping to conclusions and judging it by its name.

HOT GIRLS WANTED: TURNED ON

If you haven’t watched the graphic but fascinating Hot Girls Wanted‘documentary, about young women drawn into the sex trade and how easy it is for a web-savvy generation to end up making porn, get on it.
