What’s New on Netflix This Week of Jul 12, 2020

The French gave us a lot of wonderful things. Wine, for example; no one makes fermented grape juice like the French. And, of course , croissants. Croissants, damn it, the best. I spent three weeks on summer vacation in France a few years ago and started each day by walking to the nearest bakery – there were about six to choose from – to buy fresh croissants, which was great. Later I tried to make my own and found they were literally half butter. This is correct and good. Nicoise salad. Baguettes. Cheeses: Camembert, Roquefort, Brie and Blue. Edith Piaf. Jacques Brel. La nouvelle vague: Godard, Truffaut, Varda. Les artistes! Monet. Ezanne. Renoir. Degas. Toulouse-Lautrec. French culture is a gift to the world. What did we give them in return?

Well, here’s this French comedy, due out on Netflix this week, about three women in their forties who sleep with younger men while on vacation in the south of France. It’s called MILF (July 16), after the wicked description of an attractive woman of a certain age, popularized by the movie American Pie .

So that’s what. MILF: A phrase, not a movie that the Hollywood Reporter called “a movie I’d like to forget.” Don’t say we didn’t give you anything, France. Here’s what else comes and goes from Netflix this week, including Cursed (July 17), a new original series reimagining the legend of King Arthur based on the young adult novel Thomas Wheeler with art by comic book legend Frank Miller.
