New on Netflix: May 2016

Bad Neighbours

Bad Neighbours, Grace and Frankie, Bloodline and Marseille among highlights in May

Seth Rogen, Rose Byrne and Zac Efron star in hilarious comedy Bad Neighbours which appears on Netflix on 8 May to coincide with the imaginatively named sequel, Bad Neighbours 2: Sorority Rising hitting the cinemas. It’s also an exciting month for comedy in TV with the entire second season of Grace and Frankie seeing Jane Fonda and Lily Tomlin get up to mischief in their dating lives and learn all about new masturbatory techniques! And if it’s despicable antics you’re after the gang make a welcome return with season 11 of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia which is added on 8 May.

If you’ve never seen Peter Bogdonavich’s four hour music documentary, Tom Petty & the Heartbreakers: Runnin' Down a Dream, you now have the chance as it appears on 1 May. Also worth catching in documentary is Welcome to Leith, which charts the attempted takeover of a small town by a white supremacist and The Confessions of Thomas Quick, which tells the chilling story of Sweden’s first serial killer.

Jordan Galland’s horror comedy Ava's Possessions makes its UK debut on Netflix this month and it’s certainly worth a watch. It follows a young woman in recovery after a demonic possession and features a soundtrack by Sean Lennon. It’s atmospheric and tackles the subject of addiction in a curious and thoughtful way and it boasts an excellent cast too including Jemima Kirke (Jessa from Girls), Lou Taylor Pucci and Carol Kane.

It's also a strong month for original drama with Netflix first French language production Marseille (starring Gérard Depardieu) making it's première alongside the return of Bloodline.
