Chicago – We’re back. Last month’s list of ten interesting new additions to the Netflix library was a huge success and it’s time for your October edition. Every one of the ten films/shows listed below has been added in the last 30 days, and the emphasis this time is on things you may not have seen.
So, don’t consider these the “best” movies when compared to one another but the best choices for your time. I mean, who hasn’t seen “Evil Dead 2,” “Ghostbusters,” and “Fargo,” all new to Netflix? You should totally watch those masterpieces again and then check out something new…

Frances Ha, 2012.
Directed by Noah Baumbach.
A story that follows a New York woman (who doesn't really have an apartment), apprentices for a dance company (though she's not really a dancer), and throws herself headlong into her dreams, even as their possible reality dwindles.
“I’m not a real person yet” says the 27 year old New Yorker when her credit card is declined at a restaurant, much to her surprise despite describing herself as ‘poor’. She’s treating a friend to dinner with money from a tax rebate but it’s beyond her to do even this most simple of daily transactions without (literally) stumbling.
This Frances, the lead character in director Noah Baumbach’s social commentary on Generation Y. Frances is likable but lives in a pretend world; she and her friends are too »

Written and directed by Chris Eigeman (Turn the River; he also starred in Whit Stillman's Metropolitan and The Last Days of Disco), the film "follows two young post graduates recruited by the Us Government to work on a top-secret project in New Mexico. Along with one of the students’ new wife, they drop their jazz-filled lives in New York and move to a secret community of scientists in the desert." As everyone knows, desert scientists hate jazz.

Even though he didn't feature in Whit Stillman's "Damsels In Distress," the last year or so has seen the director's muse Chris Eigeman, who starred in "Metropolitan," "Barcelona" and "The Last Days Of Disco," become rather more visible again. There's the potential of a reunion with his favorite director in the works, and Eigeman's been cropping up on TV in the acclaimed likes of "Girls" and "Bunheads" in the last twelve months, but it looks like the comeback might be complete, as Eigeman's prepping his second directorial feature, and has attracted a pretty impressive cast. Screen Daily report that Eigeman's "Midnight Sun," a 1940s-set drama, has Jesse Eisenberg, Emile Hirsch and Diane Kruger all lined up to star. Set against the backdrop of the creation of the A-bomb (indeed, Richard Rhodes, who won the Pulitzer for his book "The Making of the Atomic Bomb," is »
