Fall means warm sweaters, a cup of tea, and curling up in front of the television for a few hours on the weekend to unwind. So pull up a couch cushion, grab the remote, and stream a few movies and shows with my autumn suggestions from The Roku Channel, Google Play Movies, Amazon Prime Video, and Netflix.
As relaxed and off-the-cuff as drinks among friends, the chatty, ruminative, and frequently funny documentary Nothing Like a Dame find four friends and British legends of stage and screen riffing about their lives, careers, fears, and dreams.
