Film and TV recommendations

Due to online streaming, films and TV shows have the ability to reach much wider audiences than books these days and this isn’t necessarily a bad thing. These stories need to be told and this is often translated better onscreen, when viewers can really visualise what is being shown. Above, I have included films/tv shows/documentaries I have watched recently/ have seen a while ago. I really recommend watching each one! I will add to the list as I watch more.
