This week’s Netflix line-up is jam-packed.
From a controversial musical about the life of Princess Diana, to a new documentary on Britney Spears and her 13 year long conservatorship, there’s something for everyone to watch.
Check out our top picks for the week ahead:
Britney Vs Spears
Britney Vs Spears will shed light on Britney Spears’ controversial 13-year conservatorship.
The official synopsis reads: “The world knows Britney Spears: performer, artist, icon. But in the last few years, her name has been publicly tied to another, more mysterious term: conservatorship.”
“Britney vs Spears tells the explosive story of Britney’s life and her public and private search for freedom. Featuring years-long investigative work, exclusive interviews and new documents, this Netflix feature film paints a thorough portrait of the pop star’s trajectory from girl next door to a woman trapped by fame and family and her own legal status. It shows Britney’s life without utilizing the traumatic images that have previously defined her.”
