Netflix Now: Lewinsky’d Edition


This week, after ten years, Monica Lewinsky has finally broken her silence on her affair will Bill Clinton (whether this is in response to Beyonce’s “Partition” single misinformingly popularizing the term “Lewinksy’d” is unknown but would be hilarious). Writing to Vanity Fair, Lewinsky dishes on their completely consensual affair, her career after, and bouts of depression brought out by shame. It’s compelling stuff. We’ve always seen this from Clinton’s playboy-esque point of view, so it’s good to finally get the other side. The full piece releases next week, so I’ll be giving it a read.

Or I’ll just watch Netflix Instant. Since May has officially begun, we’ve got the standard first of the month dump with lots of good new and returning properties: Forrest Gump, Return of the Dragon, Gladiator, a heap of Godzilla movies, Ichi the Killer, Kill William Volumes 1&2, Adventures in Babysitting, Boys Don’t Cry, Candyman, Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children, From Dusk Till Dawn, Heavy Metal, and lots more. 

Hit the jump for the full list of Netflix Instant additions for the week.
