To avoid confusion, the film will focus on only the first half of the original novel.

Where to watch all the best 2020 movies and shows?
The best place to watch these great films and series online is their respective streaming platforms. Netflix, Disney Plus, Hulu, Amazon Prime, HBO Now, BBC iPlayer, etc. is a convenient way to indulge in the joys of binge-watching a bunch of great shows and movies.
One thing to keep in mind, though. Let’s say you are looking for films to watch this year on Netflix. You might stumble upon a problem – Netflix not working! Why does this happen? What to do if you can’t watch Netflix / Hulu / Disney+ / other streaming channels? Let’s dig into it.
What causes problems with Netflix and other streaming services?
If you can’t watch Netflix (Hulu, Disney Plus, etc.), it’s most likely that you fell victim to geo-blocking. This happens when a piece of content, such as a movie or show, is restricted to a specifiс region or country.
The reasons may vary: distribution rights restrictions, streaming service’s policy, censorship by local government. But the result is the same – you pay for the service only to find yourself restricted from part of its content. How fair is that!
How to watch best movies and shows 2020 despite content restrictions?
One way to bypass geo-blocking is by using a VPN. Unfortunately, streaming services like Netflix put a lot of effort, time, and money into blocking VPN traffic. Besides, you might find configuring a VPN a hassle, not to mention that these services can negatively impact your internet speed and video streaming quality. This makes using a VPN solely for the purpose of solving the “Netflix not working” problem a suboptimal solution.
