The quality of Netflix films is getting better and better and that is why it has got such a healthy number vying for attention from this year's Academy Award judges.
I doubt David Michôd's The King will be among the recognised pictures (although it has a perfectly decent claim) but Timothée Chalamet is certainly worth individual recognition.
The young American actor takes on the role of the English king, Henry V and carries it off expertly.
Indeed, I have to say that I enjoyed his portrayal even more than the much-acclaimed performance of Kenneth Branagh 30 years ago.
Chalamet presents Henry, or Hal to his friends, as a reluctant heir to the English throne who, rather than being slavish to his tyrannical father (Ben Mendelsohn), is led down the path of drinking and whoring by his wayward friend, Sir John Falstaff (Joel Edgerton).
However, when his father dies, he takes surprisingly easily to the role to which he was born.
This means he has to navigate the politics of court and the prospect of an impending war with France.
Over the past few years, Netflix has built a reputation for high production values and great acting.
The King fits its stable like a hand in glove, hitting its audience with the harsh reality of medieval life where ambitions are high and lives are very very cheap.
I could almost feel the biting cold and cloying mud on the battlefields of Britain and France and imagine the stench of Falstaff's pit after a night on the ale.
Chalamet has deservedly received praise for his portrayal of the young king - his English accent is without reproach but more impressive is his presence despite his slight frame.
Edgerton is equally surprising - he certainly isn't a Falstaff out of the Brian Blessed school but has equal presence without being shouty. His northern English accent is totally believable.
I wasn't so sure about Robert Pattinson, however. His French-lilting dauphin is verging on a mickey-take.
Historians would take issue with elements of The King and I was disappointed with is early stages which seemed well out of kilter with any of my own reading.
But as a piece of drama, it is compelling.

Reasons to watch: It looks great and Chalamet is brilliant
Reasons to avoid: Historically questionable

Laughs: None
Jumps: None
Vomit: None
Nudity: None
Overall rating: 8.5/10

Did you know? Shakespeare's story of Falstaff originated in Henry's early friendship with Sir John Oldcastle. Shakespeare's Falstaff was originally named "Oldcastle", following his main source, The Famous Victories of Henry V. His descendants objected and the name was changed (the character became a composite of several real persons, including  Sir John Fastolf).

The final word. Timothée Chalamet: “You want to become an actor [so you] can wield a sword, ride horses, and play an English king.” Vanity Fair
