With a seemingly endless amount of streaming options — not only the titles at our disposal, but services themselves — we’ve taken it upon ourselves to highlight the titles that have recently hit platforms. Every week, one will be able to see the cream of the crop (or perhaps some simply interesting picks) of streaming titles (new and old) across platforms such as Netflix, iTunes, Amazon, and more (note: U.S. only). Check out our rundown for this week’s selections below.
Harold Ramis certainly didn’t invent it, but his Groundhog Day made the narrative loop device a mainstream mainstay, lovingly aped in everything from Source Code to Edge of Tomorrow to 50 First Dates. In Before I Fall, the loop treatment is utilized rather intelligently by director Ry Russo-Young, from Maria Maggenti screenplay adapted from Lauren Oliver‘s novel. – Dan M. (full review)

Feature is being produced through new initiative Nordisk Film Spring.
The Danish thriller has already caught the attention of buyers and festival programmers since it was pitched at Goteborg’s Work In Progress in January.

Lina Flint produces the film through Nordisk Film Spring, a new initiative to support upcoming talents. The Danish Film Institute’s New Danish Screen also backs the project.
Spring was started by Flint (whose credits include The Elite) and screenwriter Emil Nygaard Albertsen in collaboration with Nordisk. Described as an “experimental creative collective,” it supports new talents and new ways of working.

After getting a taste of Hollywood with his adaptation of Far From the Madding Crowd, Thomas Vinterberg headed back to Denmark for his next film, The Commune, adapted by Tobias Lindholm (his partner on The Hunt and Submarino, and a great director in his own right with A Hijacking and A War). Following a family whose move into a tiny community ends up tearing them apart, the film will finally arrive in the U.S. this summer via Magnolia and now the new trailer has landed.
