  Just watched an interesting take on Hamlet called 'Ophelia'. A new release.
I've never read the play or watched a production of The Bard's tragedy but I know the bones of it, like most of us who didn't have to read it, just from other reading, watching and listening and I enjoyed the story being viewed from a different angle. Not an Oscar winner but a decent enough attempt at a film.

Another new release is a film called The Hunt. This film caused a bit of controversy in the US with their liberal gun laws even had Donald Trump criticising it but has finally been released.A good film I thought that kept going from start to finish.
Not a film for the squeamish or the kids.

I seem to recall a similar plot from a Michael Douglas film of some years ago. Though having said that, very few plots are original. Not seen much to recommend recently..

A question to technical folk.  I've been looking to get Netflix as I want to watch series 3 of the Crown.

I'm with Sky, only a basic package, I don't have movies.  They do Netflix as a movie package for 12 a month which I don't want.  My TV is not a smart one, but I can get catch up Tv through Sky, I have one of those Q boxes.

Can I get the Netflix 5.99 a month on my TV?  I wouldn't want to watch it on my computer screen so wouldn't do it unless I can get it on the TV.

I'm not at all technical so don't know how these things work.  Any advice gratefully received.

Jacqueline.. If any of your family have Netflix they can add you to their list.. My daughter did that..

Yes Jacqueline it will. I would try and get yourself a smart TV they are not that expensive and you will enjoy your viewing.

You don't need a smart tv, a Firestick will do the job & they support Netflix.All your TV needs is a spare USB port, most modern TVs have them.

I've got a HD TV, but it's not smart, I've had it 5 years plus. Would this Firestick be OK?
