We all love a good documentary on Netflix, but their latest may have us feeling a little bit broken. Kingdom of Us is the harrowing tale of a family financially destroyed when the father of seven committed suicide, and Lucy Cohen explores three years of the family’s life as they look back on old family videos, discuss the man their father was, and look forward after such a bleak past.
While the documentary looks terrific, it’s a tough film to want to watch; the trailer alone is heartbreaking, and it makes you wonder if you’ll be able to press play. Still, it looks very well done and has such an interesting and complex story at it’s heart. Just make sure you have some tissues near by.
Kingdom of Us is out on Netflix on 13th October
