Period pieces, the remnants of Halloween and the beginning of Christmas cheer…

This November on Netflix, you can expect a whole host of new films, documentaries and more. There’s a little bit for everyone which means you can catch up on some football history in preparation for the FIFA World Cup, watch a few cartoons (if that’s more your speed) or get your thrills from mysterious docuseries.
