If you live in Chicago (or really anywhere that’s been dealing with lots of snow and dangerously low temperatures), you’ve probably been spending a lot of time indoors. I don’t know about you, but when I find myself bored and stuck inside, I turn to Netflix. Here’s what you should be watching:
1) Drinking Buddies– So, we’ve got Olivia Wilde, Jake Johnson (New Girl), Anna Kendrick (Pitch Perfect), and Ron Livingston (Berger from SATC!) all hanging out in Chicago. This movie was based on a loose script and most of the dialogue was improvised by the actors. It was also filmed at Revolution Brewery, so all around, it’s pretty cool.
2) The League– I’m way behind the times on this one. Even though it has some of my favorite comedic actors from every other show I watch, I never got into it until now. It’s about a group of friends in a fantasy football league… so simple, but so easy to watch episode after episode.
3) House of Cards– If you haven’t check out this Netflix Original Series, you should. It’s a dark political drama with a stellar cast led by the brilliant Kevin Spacey. Season 2 premieres on February 14th, so start watching now!
4) Frances Ha– a delightful little film that explores female friendship, growing up, and the realities of following your dreams. Greta Gerwig is so lovely in this black and white indie, she even got a Golden Globe nomination!
