Netflix Instant: TV and Movie Picks

Well the temperature is finally reaching boiling points down here in Dallas, so that means it is time for me to stay inside in the cool air. I have a couple of documentaries (no surprise there) for you this week, plus a wonderful dramatic film.

Happy watching!

This documentary tells the story of one of John Waters's muse, a drag queen named Divine. It was a hit at last year's SXSW. I heard nothing but fantastic reviews from critics and friends. Then, I missed it when The Texas Theatre brought it to Dallas, but now it's finally made it's way to Netflix. 

The Michelin restaurant guide will rate restaurants from one to three stars. It's the goal of every chef to receive and keep a three star rating; however, it's very, very difficult to do. In the USA alone, there are only 12 three star restaurants. For any foodie, this is a fascinating documentary that follows chefs as they try to be as innovative as possible to earn this honor. 

A wonderful little drama that was overlooked by people last year. Brie Larson, in her best role to date,  is in charge of a home of troubled teenagers, and as she tries to help them have a life of normalcy, her personal life begins to interfere. It's one of the most emotional and heartfelt movies from last year.
