What to Watch This Weekend: Netflix Edition

Every weekend, I'm going to recommend a movie, documentary, and TV series that I found through Netflix or started watching because it was conveniently on Netflix and I had been meaning to get to that movie/documentary/TV show for some time. All of these recommendations below I found in 2011. If you have any recommendations, feel free to leave a comment!

Movie



Carriers

Four kids are driving through the desert on the way to the beach, their faces anything but cheery: this isn't Spring Break. They're trying to outrun the end of the world and each other. In Alex and David Pastor's Carriers, no one is safe from the viral pandemic threatening to wipe out the human race. Determined to elude the deadly virus, Danny (Lou Taylor Pucci), his brother Brian (Chris Pine), his girlfriend Bobby (Piper Perabo) and Danny's school friend Kate (Emily VanCampo) speed across the Southwestern U.S. to reach a place of possible safety. Over the course of four days, the group is faced with moral decisions that no human should ever be forced to face. They discover that their greatest enemy is not the microbe attacking humanity, but the darkness within themselves.

Documentary



See What I'm Saying: The Deaf Entertainers Documentary
Currently Not Available on Netflix Streaming

An award-winning documentary that follows four well-known entertainers in the deaf community: a comic, a drummer, an actor and a singer as they overcome personal obstacles and celebrate professional landmarks.

TV



Survivors (BBC, 2 Seasons)

When a deadly strain of flu decimates the world's population, a scrappy group of survivors find themselves struggling to exist in a world devoid of electricity, running water and government services.
