Netflix has purchased this miniseries that first aired in the UK but also had a North American premiere at TIFF 2013, where it was screened in its entirety. Represents another feather in the cap for the streaming giant’s healthy stable of original content. In fact, we comfortably call it one of the best films of 2014 so far.
If you haven't heard of "Southcliffe" yet, we understand. But any Playlist reader worth their salt should seek it out. Netflix snapped up this miniseries that first aired in the U.K., and played the festival circuit in 2013. It represents another feather in the cap for the streaming giant’s healthy stable of original content. This followup from director Sean Durkin, whose feature debut “Martha Marcy May Marlene” we championed, and writer Tony Grisoni (“The Unloved”), is yet another piece of visual storytelling that thrillingly blurs the line between TV and cinema.
