New on Netflix: The Sound of Magic
May you be dazzled and entertained with new shows aplenty
Arriving just in time for the Hari Raya celebrations, look forward to highly anticipated Malaysian films including Showtime 1958, a visually-stunning periodic film based on real events that takes audiences back to the golden age of Malaysian cinema where director P.Ramlee organises a variety show to raise funds for fellow performers who lost their jobs before Eid. Critically acclaimed black-and-white feature Prebet Sapu on the other hand follows a colour-blind illegal e-hailing driver named Aman living on the fringes of Kuala Lumpur who struggles to make a living.
Get ready to be blown away with song and dance by the mystical magician, Ri-eul, who will make you believe in magic again in The Sound of Magic. If magic isn’t in your wheelhouse, you could get loose and kick off your Sunday shoes with Ren and Ariel in Footloose.
The Sound of Magic, Premiering on 6 May
A magician living in an abandoned theme park makes troubles disappear, and hope reappear, for a disenchanted teen enduring harsh realities.
