Almost everyone out there struggles to achieve their dream and find their own voice in this crazy world we live in. That’s why films that showcase stories revolving around these concepts are such an enthralling affair. There are many of these types of movies to choose from, but none can offer the kind of experience that Radha Blank’s directorial debut The 40-Year-Old-Version. The film premiered at Sundance, where it was in contention for the U.S. Dramatic Competition Grand Jury Prize and was able to secure a win for Blank, who won the coveted U.S Dramatic Competition Directing Award.

The 40-Year-Old-Version follows a fictionalized version of Blank’s struggles within the game to reach fulfillment as a playwright and an artist. She hopes to make it big before she turns 40 and decides to reinvent herself as the rapper RadhaMUSPrime and between the two passions, she searches for her true voice. The entire film is in black and white and looks absolutely stunning. If people have missed the chance to see the film when it first arrives on the streaming service, there is still a chance to watch the stirring feature on Netflix as soon as possible.
