Netflix this week (October 13-19) plans to add 21 new TV shows and movies to its streaming lineup, including 17 originals.
The new titles will include The Laundromat, a Netflix original film starring Meryl Streep as a widow who investigates insurance fraud and rich people in faraway lands.
The movie, directed by Steven Soderbergh, is based on a real-life case. The cast also includes Gary Oldman, Antonio Banderas, Sharon Stone and Jeffrey Wright.
RottenTomatoes.com, which tracks critical reviews, gives The Laundromat a score of just 44 out of a possible 100, based on a survey of 102 critics.
“The Laundromat misuses its incredible cast by taking a disappointingly blunt and unfocused approach to dramatizing the real-life events that inspired it,” the site writes, summarizing the reviews.
