Anatomy of a Scandal

Sienna Miller plays Sophie, the wife of conservative Minister James, whose life is swept up in a public scandal. This is a story about money privilege, and politicians who believe they can buy their way through their illegal activities. 

Welcome to Eden

Welcome to Eden is a sci-fi, mystery thriller about a group of young people who get invited to a party on an island. However, things are not what they seem, and soon the guests realize the secret island holds some dangerous lies. 

Netflix has just confirmed a second season of Welcome to Eden, so we are in for a long ride.

A seemingly normal job offer turns into a nightmare as archivist Dan Turner, embarks on a new mission to restore a collection of damaged videotapes from 1994. There are some very peculiar conditions for this job, and soon enough Dans begins to experience the mysteries behind the tapes and the story they tell about a woman who disappeared decades ago. 

There is a connection between the events that occurred 25 years ago and the present moment, and Dan will see himself teetering on the verge of insanity as he travels back and forth in time trying to solve the mystery.
