Our film recommendations of the week are all online...it's the future of entertainment we hear!

 LGBT short film Call Your Father is a disturbing tale about the disconnect between two different generations hooking up for sex. Daddy issues abound...enlightening or a little close to home?!

From the director behind How To Survive A Plague, The Death and Life of Marsha P Johnson comes to streaming service Netflix this week, not without controversy.

The trans activist and pioneer who was at the vanguard of the Stonewall uprising in 1969 has an amazing story but was it white director David France's to tell, with allegations that he stole the idea and research for the film from black trans film maker Reina Gossett.
