Netflix‘s latest film, The Discovery looks great. This is the type of flick that would once have been given a limited arthouse release and now it’s transmitted right into your bedroom. Once this would have had a small reach, now it’s ready for millions of people to watch between seasons of House of Cards.
The Discovery stars Robert Redford, Rooney Mara, Jason Segel, Riley Keough and Jesse Plemons and is a love story set in a world where the afterlife has been scientifically proven, and as a result millions of people start taking their own lives to “get there.” Directed by Charlie McDowell and written by McDowell and Justin Lader (The One I Love), the film was produced by Alex Orlovsky of A-LO Films and James D. Stern of Endgame Entertainment, and was co-financed by Endgame Entertainment and Protagonist Pictures. Executive Producers are Julie Goldstein, Lucas Smith, Mike Goodridge, Dimitra Tsingou, Hunter Gray, McDowell and co-producer Erika Hampson.
The Discovery hits Netflix on 31 March 2017.
