Netflix's more serious movie-length productions have typically been documentaries, but the streaming video service is apparently ready to branch out. It just acquired Jadotville, a historical "war thriller" recreating a UN battalion's fight against overwhelming Congolese forces. While you may not be familiar with the events, you should be familiar with the star, Jamie Dornan (fresh from from Fifty Shades of Grey), who plays Commander Pat Quinlan. Director Richie Smyth, on the other hand is hardly a household name, but he's built a reputation producing music videos for everyone from The Verve to U2. The movie won't be available until 2016, so you'll just have to wait to see how well Netflix can recreate the intensity of a battlefield.
