A new streaming site I recommend is Sundance Now. If you like indie movies, foreign films or cult classics, then you should give Sundance Now a try. They are low cost, at $6.99 a month and you get a free trial week, without any promises. They offer movies like Dr. Stangelove, Taxi Driver, Brokeback Mountain, The Station Agent and Iris. One of the greatest assets on Sundance Now is their series, both American and foreign. A favorite series of mine is The Swell, a Dutch six part series about a massive storm that floods the Netherlands. If you are craving a disaster show that is smarter, and more tense, then you should give The Swell a try. And if you want in English, there is Riviera, with Julia Stiles. A thriller about a woman(Stiles) whose husband is killed just one year into their marriage, It also stars Anthony Lapaglia, a favorite of mine, and Lena Olin. Wow. And Sundance Now‘s most popular series may be This Close, about two people dealing with life in Los Angeles, who happen to be deaf. It’s witty and clever, well acted and created by Shoshannah Stern and Josh Feldman, the show’s stars. Well worth anyone’s time.
So, if your a real indie movie, or cult film fan or just love good movies and good acting, Head on over to Sundance Now, and get your free seven day trial, you may be surprised at how many movies and series you can fit into that time. And if you decide to stay on, it’s only $6.99 a month!
