Netflix Instant: Cool TV and Movie Picks

Happy Friday everyone! Here are some critically acclaimed suggestions for your weekend to get you in the mood for the awards season:

The 2010 indie darling that put Jennifer Lawrence on the map. She stars as a young girl trying to keep her family together while going on a trail to find out what happened to her druggie father. The movie is bleak yet so smart, and proves how great Lawrence is on screen.

One of the many documentaries I was lucky to see this year at the Dallas International Film Festival. An unprecedented look behind the scenes at the New York Times during the whole "newspaper is dying" epidemic. You can check out my review here!

I haven't seen this in years. I am somewhat of a history nerd (it's so dramatic!), so this fits right up my alley. Cate Blanchett is flawless as Elizabeth, and I forgot how gorgeous the movie was. Plus, a young-before-Bond Daniel Craig!
